EliteSingles Features: ID Verification

One of the many advantages of our premium membership, our ID Verification feature shows other users that we’ve verified your name, place of residence and date of birth. A little stamp of approval, it’s our way of showing your matches that you are who you say you are.

Our research shows that – above all else – our members value honesty when dating online. With ID Verification, your matches can feel more confident in contacting you; simply put, once you’ve verified your identity with us, it’s likely you’ll see an increased number of messages in your inbox!

Have some questions about how it all works? Here’s everything you need to know about ID Verification…

How do you process my ID Verification?

We’ve made the process of verifying your identity as straight-forward as possible. All you’ll need to do is send us a copy (or high quality photo) of the front and back of a valid identity card. You can email or post this – along with your Secure Code – to our service team. Accepted identity cards include a passport or driver’s license – please note, this is not an exhaustive list.

The EliteSingles service team will process your information within 24 hours of receipt and send you a confirmation email once everything’s complete. The ‘ID Verified’ icon will then be added to your profile. Your privacy is important to us so, for your peace of mind, we guarantee that no data we require to verify your identity will ever be published or displayed to other users.

What will it do for me?

The real advantage to ID Verification is what it does for your matches. Trust is important in any relationship, so assuring a future partner that you’re genuine right from the first impression means that you’re starting as you mean to go on. It gives a good impression of your openness too, and that can boost a potential partner’s interest level. That’s why we say you can expect to see a spike in the number of messages you receive.

It also helps you stand out; if you’ve been invested enough in the dating process to verify your identity, people can tell you’re taking this seriously. Simply, it gives your matches one more reason to contact you!

Don’t you check member profiles anyway?

We’re very proud of the fact that our customer service team takes the time to manually check each and every new profile on our site. It’s our way of ensuring the online safety of our members; we’re confident that all new member profiles are of people truly looking for love, and that no-one on our site has any unsavory ulterior agendas.

This isn’t the same as ID Verification though. Think of ID Verification as an extra level of trust, which is especially important for when you want to meet your matches in person. If we can be sure of your authenticity, so can your matches!

What happens if I don’t verify my ID?

If, for whatever reason, you don’t wish to verify your ID with us, you’re under no obligation to do so. Your premium membership with EliteSingles puts you in a great position to find ‘the one’ online anyway, and there are many other great features for you to take advantage of.

So nothing really happens when you don’t verify your ID, except that some of your matches may choose not to contact you without it. We merely recommend it since we want you and your matches to get the very most out of our service.

If you have any further questions about ID Verification, or any of the other features on our site, don’t hesitate to contact our service team.
