After you hire someone with a SafetyPIN, it can be hard to imagine doing anything without it…

And with so many ways to reap the benefits of our unique SafetyPIN security verification process, you’ll definitely want to know about these 5 unexpected uses for a SafetyPIN, especially when you can still get yours for just a $1 application fee.

WATCH: How would a SafetyPIN help?

1 – Hiring a Tutor 

Go out and find the very best tutor to give your kid lessons. There’s no reason to settle for second best instruction. But there IS a reason to make sure your child is safe. SafetyPIN is also a must for music lessons, sports coaches, gaming coaches… anyone who’s working with your child and will be alone with them at all.

2 – Finding a Roommate

Living with a roommate is an awesome way to cut housing costs by sharing your space with another person. It’s super important to like the person you’re living with. Even more important is feeling confident that you can trust them… with your valuables, your money, your pets, and even your life.

3 – Buying Something on Craigslist

There’s really no way to say for sure who you’re buying from on Craigslist. It’s one thing if you’re buying a baseball glove and can meet up at a local Starbucks with lots of people around… but what if you’re buying a sofa? Or a large home appliance like a washer or dryer? If the person you’re dealing with turns out to be creepy, you might find yourself compromised. Always ask for a SafetyPIN anytime you’re dealing with a seller online to avoid uncomfortable situations.

4 – Adopting a Pet

Adoption is one of the most rewarding ways to find a furry friend. But many rescues have extensive and often invasive screening measures in place. After all, they want to make sure the pup doesn’t end up in another bad situation. And it makes sense because shelter animals or those taken in by rescues have seen the worst in people already. During the interview process, make sure to provide your SafetyPIN to give them peace of mind that you’ll be a great home.

In fact, a member of our team just brought home “Batch” from a shelter and proudly shared her SafetyPIN to expedite the process.

5 – Peer-To-Peer Car Rental

It’s pretty cool to live in a world where we can just skip the car rental counter and book a nice car from someone local on an app, right? If you decide to join in on this latest trend, be sure to make a SafetyPIN a non-negotiable before letting anyone drive it.
