Get Your 100% Free Dating ID

Start your next date right. Get verified.

If you are an online dating user you know that there are major security issues, including catfishing, scams, and other serious crimes. You may have wondered: is there a dating ID of some kind that could help protect me from these dangers? How about something that could show other people I am a legitimate user myself??

Yes, there is, and you have found it! But why should you get one?

  • Verifying your identify to other online dating users will give them confidence that you are who you say you are, giving you a leg up on the dating market.
  • Your dates are probably Googling you anyway, including screening you on DateID. If you become a member you can take control of your profile and make sure you look your best.
  • Users sharing their profiles are reporting getting more matches. 

Getting Your Dating ID is Easy!

This shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes. This video will show you how to get your ID and how to promote it on dating apps to get more matches. The demo is on a desktop computer but you can use your phone or tablet.

See my completed profile live here: To get started, simply use Facebook to create an account. After we’ve verified you, you will be granted a bronze shield.

Go for Gold

We recommend that you not stop with a bronze shield, as it represents only a baseline level of verification.

Here’s how to earn a gold shield:

Upload a drivers license or passport, and take a short selfie video. This is called a “liveness test“ and it is the gold standard for identity verification online. For this part of the process, you’ll need to install the mobile app Yoti, which is free for iPhone and Android.

You can also verify your location, which will give you a check mark next to your city. This will give other online dating users confidence that you’re not lying about your location which is a common problem.

Stand Out from the Crowd: Promote Your Profile

Once you have become a member, we recommend that you share your profile on dating apps. You can customize your username and profile URL, just like any other social network.

DateID watermarks all photos to protect them from theft. We will automatically import your Facebook profile photos and they all instantly become available with a watermark. You can also import Instagram and Twitter photos by connecting your accounts.

Download your watermarked photos and add them to your dating apps to show you are legit, and share your DateID profile username or link, and you can increase the number of matches you get.

DateID is Safe and Secure

We use Identity Verification with bank grade security, including requiring documentation such as a passport or drivers license, and an actual liveness test, which includes a selfie video, to make sure you’re a real human.

How do I know this isn’t part of the Hookup ID scam?

Don’t fall for the Hookup ID scam. DateID is the only legit dating verification platform and we have been widley recognized as the leader in online dating security. You can read more about us here:

To get started, use Facebook to create an account.


How does DateID’s verification process work?

We are powered by Yoti, the leader in digital identity verification. Simply download Yoti for free, upload your passport or drivers license, and snap a selfie. Then, connect to your account and you will instantly level up to Gold status.

What’s the best online dating ID?

We are the one and only legitimate online dating ID. Everything else is a scam, including the Hookup and Meetup ID.

Is the Hookup ID real or a scam?

You may also have seen advertisements for so-called hookup IDs. No such legitimate product exists; don’t give these websites your credit card or other personal information. You’ll end up $30 lighter with nothing to show for it, and your info may be sold on the dark web.

Is DateID legit?

Yes! We are 100% legit. We’ve been featured in major online dating and verification/Internet security publications, including Global Dating Insights, Information Security Buzz, Mobile ID World, Biometric Update, and Biometric World.

Do I have to provide a credit card?

No, it’s 100% free and there’s no credit card required. If you decide to screen other people there is a $.99 out-of-network fee for people who are not members. Once you have yours, other members can view it for free.

Great, I’ve got my dating ID. What now?

When anyone searches for you, you will come up as a Gold member, rather than an unverified non-member. This will already give you an advantage because people know you’re real. Better still is to pick your username in profile URL, and share it on dating apps. You can also watermark your photos and upload them to dating apps so that other users know you are legit. People who have done this are reporting getting more matches.

Remy Tennant

Founder, DateID

Remy’s a serial online dater who founded DateID after going on one too many bad first dates. He’s been online dating on and off since 2005 and watched things gradually go downhill as online dating entered the mainstream.

Things got particularly bad shortly after Tinder came on the scene and was followed by a rush of similar apps. The superficial profiles, lies and deception, lack of accountability, choice paradox (too many apps, your next potential date being just a swipe away), ghosting, benching, breadcrumbing, and general lack of regard for human dignity snowballed. He’s also never met at dating app that wasn’t swimming with catfish.

Remy believes that lies, deception, and lack of accountability are some of the roots of the problem. That’s where DateID comes in.
