How does iCrederity verify identity?

Our identity verification process uses advanced technology including the kind banks and credit card companies use to protect you from fraud. iCrederity first ensures that the identity being provided by an individual exists and does not belong to a deceased or otherwise inappropriate person. iCrederity then verifies that the identity belongs to the person providing it. This technology builds a web-administered quiz from information contained in billions of public records that only individuals can answer themselves. Responses to questions are analyzed and iCrederity is able to determine to a high degree of certainty whether or not the individual is who he or she claims to be.

For reference verifications, we obtain information from references directly and may authenticate references themselves.
