Frequently asked questions

Learn more about Trusted Accounts.

What is Trusted Accounts?

Trusted Accounts is a impact-oriented company providing solutions to community platforms to stop trolls and bots to fight disinformation, hate and abuse. With Trusted Accounts users are able to prove they are real and unique while staying anonymous. Drastically increasing your verification rate and allowing you to grow a human community.

What makes Trusted Accounts different?

Trusted Accounts is not just another user verification/KYC (Know Your Customer) service. KYC services verify user information (identity, address) using methods like document verification and biometric scans. However, these methods see low verification rates on news and community platforms (less than 10%). Simply due to the effort users have to go through (app download, id scans, face scans) and privacy concerns. A KYC verification is also quite expensive.

Trusted Accounts is an innovative proof-of-personhood service optimized for community platforms. We verify that a user is real and unique. We do not verify the identity of a user. This allows us to offer:

  • Low Verification Barrier: Because we do not have to verify the identity of the user we can use a combination of low-barrier verification methods like phone verification or browser fingerprinting. No app download needed, verified within 15 seconds and cheaper.
  • Anonymity and Privacy: Many users do not want to reveal their identity to a KYC provider to comment or post on a community platform. Trusted Accounts fully anonymizes all verification data, so that everyone can become part of a more human web. (Here is our blog post on privacy.)
  • Reusable Verification: A verified Trusted Account is reusable across all partner platforms. Once a user is verified on one platform, he or she can verify on all partner platforms in just one click. Further increasing verification rates.

We publish regular financial and privacy reports and support non-profit organizations with a similar mission.
