Verify the authenticity of a profile

What does the blue badge on some profiles mean?

 

Do you sometimes wonder if the profile is real or if the photos are really theirs? You can now find out if a profile has been verified by its sticker.

How are photos verified?

The user will take a selfie and facial recognition technology will compare the selfie to the photos submitted (the selfie is not published on the profile). If the photos match, the profile will be verified.

This feature, aimed at improving your security and transparency between members, is not reserved to subscribers, and everyone can benefit from it.

Please note that a verified profile cannot fully guarantee the integrity of the member. So stay alert and follow our safety tips.
