About DateIDDateID gives online dating users a fast, easy and effective way to screen dates before agreeing to meet.
The brave new world of modern romance
Historically, singles met through friends, family, co-workers and even neighbors. Individuals were accountable to their community and social checks and balances helped ensure that people treated each other with respect.
There is no accountability in online dating and another date is just a few swipes away; as a result, people treat each other as expendable. Deception has practically become routine, and common courtesy has been all but forgotten. Add to this the increasing frequency of ‘catfishing’, ‘sextortion’ and violent crime, and online dating can be a minefield.
DateID is addressing some of the underlying problems that are preventing online dating from realizing its full potential. We are bringing security, transparency and accountability to this new way of life so that compatible singles can find each other more easily. We envision a world where there are more good first dates, significantly more second dates, and more satisfying connections for all.

How DateID Works
DateID scours the web for critical information on online dating users and uses AI to build data-rich profiles that are compiled in a searchable database. DateID also empowers legitimate online daters to shine: verified users can curate their profiles, and receive watermarked photos for use on dating sites.
Why Are We Doing This?
In a survey of over 470 online dating users, we validated our own experience that online dating is broken, in part due to the fact that users are lying to each other. 95% of people Google each other before meeting in order to avoid bad actors–and worse first dates. Here are some common pain points.
