MINNEAPOLIS − October 27, 2015 − Today, Token of Trust, a Minnesota-born tech startup, announced the unveiling of an affordable and easy way to protect people from cyber criminals, scammers, and untrustworthy people on websites and apps. The Token of Trust platform allows website owners and app developers to create safer online marketplaces with intelligent member verification and risk assessments. Companies that connect strangers online like dating or rental websites can help their members make informed and safer decisions by adding Token of Trust’s identity widget to listings and profiles. The widget displays identity assurance and risk indicators for members while respecting the privacy of each member by not revealing or storing sensitive data.
…an affordable verification alternative that protects trustworthy members…
Darrin Edelman, co-founder of Token of Trust
“Current approaches for preventing account abuse are expensive, hard to get right, and can be a distraction from core business” says Token of Trust Co-Founder, Darrin Edelman. “We’re excited to offer an affordable verification alternative that protects trustworthy members and can link fraudulent behavior back to a real, identifiable person.”
The new embeddable Token of Trust™ identity widget for user profiles will become available in November. Token of Trust will offer a free trial and pay-as-you-go pricing for advanced features. Developers can request an API key today at TokenofTrust.com/developer/. The Token of Trust identity widget will premier at this year’s global Web Summit conference in Dublin, Ireland. Token of Trust was recently selected as a Web Summit ALPHA Class of 2015 company and will be presenting at the trendsetting technology conference with over 30,000 attendees.
The founders of Token of Trust have taken a fresh, innovative approach to a real cyber security problem…
