What Does SafetyPIN Screen?

Based on all the sources of data we analyze, SafetyPIN screens the following for each applicant:

  • Over 450 million national criminal records searched
  • Over 10,000 sources of data checked for ID verification and all previous addresses
  • Social Security Number Trace
  • National Sex Offender Registry
  • National Alias Search
  • Global Watchlist
  • Financial judgment and bankruptcy records
  • Driving record review*
  • “Beyond County” records for everywhere the applicant has lived since they turned 18**
  • Proprietary Beacon Behavioral Review – designed with criminal profilers and experts to eliminate people that set off red flags, even if they don’t have a criminal record
  • Regular rescreening – Check as often as you like to ensure the individual is still in good standing


Limited information may be available for some states, including Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin, as they don’t share driving record data.

**Criminals don’t stop at the county line, so neither do we. We screen a broad radius from every address based on Department of Justice statistics on how far from home a crime is usually committed. We then increase that distance almost 70%. That allows us to discover criminal records that don’t show on a standard county level screening.

Apply for a SafetyPIN.

A SafetyPIN is the best way to assure someone you met online that they can trust you in real life. By displaying a current SafetyPIN when booking jobs, home sharing, and more, you’re letting people know you care about their safety and peace of mind.

Verify a SafetyPIN.

Looking for a SafetyPIN is critical when taking any online meeting offline. But before you commit, take the extra minute and verify their SafetyPIN. By confirming their membership is in good standing, you’re letting them know trust is critical to you.
