A secure, accurate, and convenient way to verify the legitimacy of people you engage with.

Automatic Identity Protection

Protect your identity just by signing up. Your personal information is uniquely secured to your LegitChex account.

Data-Driven Trust-Building

Build trust with new contacts quickly and safely. Every user has an anonymous public profile with identity and trust scores that can be improved with our state-of-the-art verification tools.

Secure Messaging

Chat with your contacts securely. All communication on LegitChex is secured using up-to-date encryption standards.

How It Works

Starting Swiftly

Sign up for free in 30 seconds, then verify yourself from the comfort of your own home in minutes. The step-by-step process is convenient, allowing you to use your phone's built-in camera to scan your documents and details. This is done at your own pace, so that you can start using our features without having to verify everything at the beginning.

Building Legitimacy

Everyone starts with a zero-score personal profile that is readily improved. Build your identity score by adding and verifying government-issued identification such as a driver's license or passport. Build your trust score by encouraging other identity-verified users to rate you positively, such as with friends and family.

Maintaining Anonymity

By default, your public profile does not show your personal information such as real name, picture, email address, and phone number. By only publicly disclosing indirect data such as verification status and scores, we help you control your privacy.

Engaging Users

Search for other users by their LegitChex ID (LID), or share your own LID for others to review your legitimacy. Then you can connect with them as a contact in order to chat. Be sure to talk with the user on LegitChex to make sure that the person who provided you the LID actually owns that account.
