About Us

Verif-y is a technology company that offers a new breed of identity, compliance and credentialing solutions to organizations and individuals around the world. Verif-y‘s solutions are designed to give the user unparalleled control over their own identity documents, professional certifications, accreditations, education verifications and much more. For the first time, the individual user has full control over who has access and when to their sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII). By having the power to terminate access or request to have their historical records deleted, users maintain privacy and security of their personal information. Organizations who receive access to this verified information are able to improve their onboarding speeds, increase efficiencies and materially reduce their compliance and privacy regulation burdens.

Our mission is to develop and use the most secure, efficient technologies in order to provide this unique and evolving experience to our users through continued innovation, determination and customer obsession. We provide individuals with new levels of control and provide employers, credential providers, and other organizations with better ways to serve their employees, students, customers and members.

User-Centric Blockchain Platform Benefits Everyone

Verif-y’s user-centric platform benefits all participants by changing the way that credential data is handled. By shifting control over to users, organizations no longer have to spend the time and resources to ensure that PII is not compromised or mishandled, which improves their ability to address new data privacy regulations such as CCPA, GDPR, and others.

This shift in control over data from credit reporting agencies and background check companies to the individual benefits both the individual and the organization by providing security and improved accuracy of the information and underlying identities that are being shared.

Products & Services

Regulatory Compliance Screening Services

Verif‑y’s compliance services include KYC (Know Your Customer), KYB (Know Your Business), ACI (Accredited Investor) and more; allowing businesses to trust unknown customers in a prompt, efficient, auditable and secure manner.

Credential and Employment Verification

Verif-y modernizes the relationship between employers and job applicants. For the first time, both parties have a platform where they can communicate pertinent, pre-validated information directly.

Identity Verification

Verif-y aggregates a user’s information to create their own set of unique identifiers. These identifiers are then shared with user approval to facilitate faster processing, access management and much more.

Our Story

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 at the end of 2016 with a small team of devoted individuals. Over the past two and a half years, we’ve been improving technologies, gaining new team members, adding to our list of services, and saddened every time we have to say goodbye to an intern. Despite this ongoing change and growth, our main goals haven’t changed - to give people back the control over their own identity, while creating a more efficient process of identity verification, privacy and compliance for all parties involved.

As we progress through our lives we constantly encounter situations where we need to provide information about our professional and personal histories. At Verif-y, we realized that this narrative is universal to everyone who is looking for a job, applying for finances, investing 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.

The Verif-y Platform

Verif-y’s platform focuses on integrating key features of identity verification together while building trust and maintaining security.

Verif‐y's compliance services allow businesses to seamlessly, swiftly and cost-effectively onboard new users and customers, allowing for new, trusting relationships to be established with the users in a compliant, auditable, and secure manner.

Verif-y’s platform provides clients with a highly secure environment due to its use of blockchain, multiple levels of encryption, and controlled access to rights of sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”).

At its core, these solutions are designed to give users control over who can see their information such as identity documents, education verifications, professional certificates, and more. Besides being able to control who can see their verified credentials, users can also determine what sections of their repository will be made available and for how long access will be granted. By doing so, individuals have better control over their digital identities and organizations can better serve their users all while improving their internal operations.

  • Verif‑y’s platform receives uploads of verified credentials from the awarding institutions and places them in the appropriate user’s repository. Users control who can see their verified credentials and determine what sections of their repository will be made available. There is even the option to terminate access to a party that they have shared information to and request such party to remove any information they have collected.
