How Does Your Company Ensure Account Verification?

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 3.51.30 PMIt’s not just bots. In fact, on more complex websites, people are creating these accounts – for many reasons!

“I wake up everyday and have dozens of bogus accounts created …”


Some people are looking to download your content from behind your request for an email address. Or a free trial. Other people are looking to skirt an age requirement for products that require an age verification (Google requires account holders to be 13 to hold an account). But even Google doesn’t verify identity on accounts to the point where they’re certain the applicant is 13 or older. And that’s Google!

How about a widget on your account creation page that could ask someone for their name, date of birth and last four digits of their social security number and you verify them in real time? And you don’t store any Personally Identifiable Information – so no risk!

Foresight is a leader in identity verification and transaction verification. We can help you deploy a simple-yet-robust widget to verify real people versus fake people.

Let’s face it – we have all signed up for a free trial with a fake identity to avoid sales calls. But when it comes to membership on your site, or selling online where age or identity is essential – you have to get serious about verification!
