What is ID verification?

Image

There 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.
