The explosive growth of the Internet has put us closer and closer to strangers who are outside of our natural circle of trust. We ride in cars with drivers we don’t know, sleep in the beds of people we’ve never met before, date people we meet online, and have strangers come to our home to walk our dog or buy our used car.
That’s why we created Dentity. We give you a way to build trusted connections by allowing you to easily prove and share your identity information with other people, companies, or “things.” With Dentity, you can share your personal identity information anytime, anywhere, and request that others do the same.
It’s the safest and most secure way to share your personal identity information. Because Dentity is a peer-to-peer network, a website, username, or password doesn’t sit between you and your trusted connections. That means you can establish an infinite number of connections without sharing your personal information each time. It’s trust on steroids!
Building Trust Online
Consumers, and their reliance on one another, are powering the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer Internet. The problem is that the Internet wasn’t built with an identity layer. This has created ad-hoc and inconsistent trust models across the sites we use in our daily lives — some have them, some do not. Because of this, the “trust equity” that we build on one site isn’t portable to the next.
Trust needs to be universal and portable.
Moreover, we can no longer assume a person is “real” because they have a social media account, email address, or they’ve posted something for sale on the Internet. In 2020, over 37% of all Internet users were in fact bots.
Facebook deleted over 1.3 billion fake accounts in the first quarter of 2021 alone, yet according to a recent governmental report, they still left 95% of reported fake accounts active. It’s estimated that around 20% of the profiles on dating apps like Tinder are fake.
Creating a Safer Internet
Anonymity is the biggest threat to online trust and safety. Bad things happen on the Internet under the veil of anonymity. Everyday someone is getting catfished, scammed, or even worse, on social networks, peer-to-peer marketplaces, or dating apps. None of these sites require identity proofing to create an account, and as a result, they can become a haven for bad actors, predators, and criminal activity.
2020 was a record-breaking year for online child exploitation, with more than 21.7 million reports according to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Technology, in particular the Internet, has enabled sex trafficking and sexual exploitation to become the fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world.
