ABOUT US

Changing the way you think about your online identity.

 

At Safe2Meet, we believe that your online identity is an important part of who you are and should be protected. We started Safe2Meet to give individuals the ability to declare their credibility, and to distinguish themselves from those who would use the web, or other means of interaction for less than ethical reasons. Our platform was designed to give you ultimate control of what you create, and allows you to validate both your online and offline activity in a way that shows that you are responsible and yes, credible.

 

Our company was formed in 2016 by a team of veteran technology professionals with years of industry experience building secure, highly available, transaction-based systems for companies large and small. We believe that our platform will not only provide a valuable service to its users, but that in the end it will make interactions between strangers easier and less dangerous.

 

A culture of credibility and responsibility.

 

We live in an age where our digital footprint is no longer within our control – scammers can pretend to be us, use our likenesses, and assume our identities. Even worse, they can create false identities and use them to exploit the unsuspecting. Safe2Meet solves the problem of anonymity on and offline by providing a platform that allows you to centralize your online activities and confirm them against your validated identity. Your activities are tracked through our platform, and any question about their authenticity can be answered via our patent pending process for confirming them instantly and securely. Safe2Meet is the world’s first online identity and activity management platform – it’s going to change everything about the way we interact with strangers online, and in person.

Now YOU Control Your Online Identity

 

Safe2Meet.com is an online platform that provides self-certification services in the form of an online background check that leverages both traditional databases for searching for criminal activity, establishing identity, new forms of social data, and tracked on and offline activity that together build a confidence or credibility index that an online shopper, buyer, or profile owner is who they say they are, and did what it says they did.

Safe2Meet helps facilitate peer-to-peer 3rd party validation, allowing actors in an online transaction to initiate a validation prior to conducting business or any other interaction with someone they’ve encountered on or offline.
