Identity Authentication, VERIFICATIONS & Background Checks

Easily add trust and safety to any web, iOS or Android experience. 



Mission

Authenticating.com™ is a cloud based identity authentication, attribute verification and background check solution that helps companies make better decisions and do a better job of qualifying consumers.

•  A single API and SDK for every authentication, verification and check you need saves time to market, R&D and the cost of integrating, managing and maintaining multiple software systems and accounts with cumulative setup fees, platform fees and minimum monthly commitments.

• Our purchasing power drives down prices and gives us a direct line of contact to upper management. As a result, this lowers utilization costs and increases the level of support our customers get through us versus going direct to our partners instead. 

•  Peer-to-peer exchanges, two-sided marketplaces, social and professional networks, online communities and more can instantly vet their users to add multiple layers of trust and safety to any experience.

• Employers, lenders, landlords, ICOs, financial institutions and others can perform low-cost AML, KYC, FCRA, GDPR, DPPA, EEOC and FHA compliant checks through our channel partnerships with leading CRAs and data furnishers.

 

• Authenticating.com™ limits liability and risk exposure from customers unnecessarily storing the sensitive, personally identifying information of their users when performing verifications and checks themselves. 



USE CASES

API and SDK Integration Scenarios


  • 58% of hiring managers have caught lies on job applications. False places, dates and titles of employment, schools attended, degrees achieved, licenses held and certifications earned are just some of the areas where job applicants will mislead others on their résumé. 40% of pre-employment screenings return at least one serious flag. These imposters not only waste a hiring manager's time, they waste employer's money hoping their misdeeds won’t be discovered.

    Job seekers can consent and authorize to the verification of their employment, education, professional licenses and certifications through a custom solution compliant with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that is powered by an integrated consumer reporting agency partner. Criminal background and reference checks are also available. Low cost, multi-step verifications can save potential hirers, hiring platforms and job marketplaces excessive onboarding costs. Authenticating.com can enable consumers to certify their experience and prove themselves to others wherever they wish. 


  • Only 44% of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) landlords conduct sex offender checks and only 51% of DIY landlords conduct criminal background checks because until now, it has been too cost prohibitive. Authenticating.com can perform a Fair Housing Act (FHA) and FCRA compliant screening through an integrated consumer reporting agency partner for criminal, credit and eviction history.

    This service let's landlords, management companies and housing platforms offer would-be renters an easy way to quickly authenticate themselves and complete the verifications necessary to qualify as a renter. Potential landlords can schedule showings and lease property to pre-screened prospective tenants without the heavy cost of a tradtional tenant screening while still offering the level of safety, security and social responsibility the residents of their communities desire.


  • 54% of online daters report meeting someone in person who seriously misrepresented themselves online first. According to the FBI, romance scams and confidence fraud are the second largest source of cybercrime in the US. Most dating apps rely on Facebook as its sole authenticator, but according to Facebook's own estimates more than 10% of their 2 billion users (200 million accounts) are fake.

    Authenticating.com offers a common sense solution to online dating and social deception. By requiring users to privately and anonymously prove their photos, age and identity, and proactively denying verifications or access to sex offenders and other criminals, dating sites, mobile apps and social networks can provide a greater sense of trust in the connections their users make their products and services.


  • Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules require sellers, buyers, traders, brokers and exchanges of digital assets to prove the identity of account holders, check Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), sanctions, watch, enforcement, cross border courts and adverse media lists and source the funds being used in a financial transaction. In the US alone, non-payment or non-delivery of goods or services is the third largest source of cybercrime based on reports made to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center.  And since the US Supreme Court just ruled that states can now legalize and regulate sports betting, this problem is only expected to get worse before its gets better.

    Authenticating.com gives platforms, marketplaces, exchanges, communities, businesses and consumers tools of trust so they can have confidence in who they do commerce with online. Low-cost self-verifications enhance safety and security in buying and selling anything online.


  • To address the growing problem of discount abuse, Authenticating.com can be used to verify individuals belong to the groups that they say they do. Merchants will often offer discounts to corporate employees, students, alumni, active duty military and their families, veterans, teachers, first responders, etc., and fraudsters will do whatever they can to claim a discount that they are not entitled to.

    With direct connections to the most authoritative databases available, Authenticating.com can instantly verify a person deserves the discount they are claiming. By requiring a person to prove their identity before providing a discount, merchants can eliminate discount fraud and abuse for good.
