ID verification

ImageThere are approximately 33 million Igbo people worldwide. From the beginning, Igbo Introductions have been conscious of online romance fraud, particularly when dealing with international boundaries. We also understand current user concerns with data privacy and the use of social media. 

We teamed up with Yoti, a digital ID verification company who work with online dating and matchmaking companies like Igbo Introductions to enable users to safely, using encryption, prove who they say they are online. Their app, accessible on both iOS and Android is free for users. 

Changes to our services 

In the past, ID verification was compulsory for all users. Although this meant that we were able to have confidence in the authenticity of all our users, it was disappointing to have to turn away potential members of our growing community particularly those based in Nigeria. 

Our changes mean that we have opened up our services to all by making ID verification optional. ID verification with Igbo Introductions will still be free, quick and easy for all who wish to use it however those who do not wish to verify their ID will still be able to use our services. Our users will be given the autonomy to choose whether they match, contact and meet with verified or unverified users through our badge system. An example of this can be seen below:

Benefits of ID verification 

Verified users will be rewarded with a badge marking the authenticity of their profile. Verified users will have undergone ID checks using government issued identification documents though the Yoti digital identity app. ID verification is a free service we are offering to enable users to prove that they are who they say they are online. This will give other users confidence in matching, contacting and meeting up with you if you choose to be a badge-verified member. 

Instant Messenger

Chat to your matches and get to know them in real time using our instant messaging feature. Chat is fully compatible with mobile and sends notifications to your phone and computer if you receive a message when you're offline! 

 

 

Notifications

Get live notifications both online and offline! Sign up to notifications to keep updated with all the activity on your account. Igbo Introductions will be sending out alerts for new members to make sure you don't miss the chance to meet your match, even if you're on the go!

Safety & Privacy

That's why we offer, optionally, a unique identity verification service, identifying government- ID verified members. This gives you the safety and security that these members are who they say they are but the autonomy to choose between verified and unverified members. 

Additionally, we offer our members the ability to toggle their privacy settings, enabling different access levels to your profiles depending on your level of comfort.

Suggested Matches

Get suggested matches both online and offline! Automated matches based on your preferences and personality matches! Notifications to your computer and mobile device about new users, potential matches and interests!
