There’s one question I get more than any other…why do I need to ask for a SafetyPIN if the site I’m using does its own background check?

I get it.

A lot of sites like, Airbnb, and do background screenings on the people listed on their site. And that’s a good start.

But the truth is, we have no idea what each site actually screens for…or how often they check.

Because someone who came up “clean” a month ago, may have committed a crime since.

And those “little” details matter.

Because when you trust a nanny you found on online, or a man renting you a cabin on a home sharing site—you are trusting them with your safety, and the safety of your loved ones.

That’s where SafetyPIN comes in.

We go way beyond your typical background screening by working with law enforcement and criminal profiling professionals. And we screen for 4 different areas of safety and verification.

Plus, we continuously re-run and re-qualify our users. In fact, every SafetyPIN is date and time-stamped to the second to assure you it’s still valid.

If you’re inviting someone into your home, or going to someone’s home for the first time, can you ever be too careful?

Absolutely not.

Ask for a SafetyPIN so you know you can trust them—provide your SafetyPIN so they know they can trust you.
