Verified Identity Helps the Online Dating Industry

Online Identity for Online Dating

When you hear about a fraudulent account through a customer complaint, it's too late. The damage is done to your user and your site's reputation. What if you could pinpoint fraudulent identities at the time of account creation - before customer accounts and identities are compromised?

Do You Know Who Your Users Are?

broken heartOnline dating sites are a huge target for online fraud. Scammers can create multiple profiles and start "dating" your good users and quickly get to the point where they can ask for money. (Read more about how your users can prevent online dating scams.) They are using sophisticated social engineering techniques and they know just what to say and how to say it. They depend on you not paying attention - after all, it's not your money being stolen.

But the first thing your users do when they have a bad experience with a scammer is leave your service. Too many bad memories and too many other online dating sites out there to be tried.

By adding online identity verification technology to the fraud detection process, online dating sites get increased confidence and trust in their user community, resulting in happier users and a better reputation.

BeehiveID's social authentication technology works at the time of new account creation to verify that the account is being created by a real, unique individual.

Stop Fake Accounts

Users login to a social site such as Facebook, Google or LinkedIn and we comb through that data to find the patterns real people have that fake accounts cannot have.

Prevent Duplicate Accounts

Sometimes there can be only one. If desired, you can use BeehiveID's technology to make sure each person only has one account. This is good for avoiding abuse of free tiers.

Ban Bad Actors

Real people can also turn out to be jerks. With BeehiveID you can ban someone from your site and make it stick - our technology ensures they cannot create a new account to get around your ban.

"Since we launched Beehive, we have seen a 21% increase in the number of members participating in the verification process. We have also seen a 30% increase in the number of members who are being successfully verified. This again speaks to the reduced friction of Beehive's verification process."
