About DateIDOn a mission to make online dating safer
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 incentivized people to be authentic, transparent and 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.
Worst of all, the increasing frequency of ‘catfishing’, ‘sextortion’, romance scams, and even violent crime makes online dating 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 deception, safety and security are no longer a problem; where there are more good first dates, significantly more second dates, and more satisfying connections for all.

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 online dating pain points.
