Our founder, while working in the cut-throat world of investment banking, witnessed first-hand (more than a few times) the gap in the accuracy of credential verification and the repercussions that occurred as a result of these inaccuracies. This sparked a sequence of ideas on how to address this issue and thus, Verif-y was created.
Verif-y began full operations in early 2017 with a small team of devoted individuals. Over the past several years, we’ve been improving technologies, gaining new team members, and adding to our list of services. Despite this ongoing change and growth, our main goals haven’t changed – to give people back the control over their own identity, sensitive records all while creating a more efficient process of identity verification, privacy and compliance for our client organizations.
As we progress through our lives, we constantly encounter situations where we need to provide information about our professional and personal lives and histories. At Verif-y, we realized that this narrative is universal to everyone who is looking for a job, checking in, applying for finances and much more.
We also recognized that most of the information that is used to evaluate our financial, employment, or credential authenticity is not within our control. Verif-y was created to change that! Our users own their information and have the power to decide who can see and access it, as well as remove access when they desire.
