Safety is a serious concern for Realtors®.
NAR announced in November 2017 that a new safety tool is being made available to all Realtors® for free. Trust Stamp is online service that empowers Realtors® to protect themselves and their clients by helping them verify stranger identities prior to meeting.
Trust Stamp is an artificial intelligence (AI) company that focuses on biometrically created digital identities. Their goal is to replace user names and passwords (knowledge-based authentication) -- and eventually, even the social security number. For the real estate industry, the goal is to achieve identity and trust, so that agents can stay safe.
How Does It Work?
Realtor® members can offer VIP Client Profie registration to prospective buyers and sellers prior to meeting with them. Trust Stamp allows Realtors® to send invitations to a recipient's email address or mobile phone number. Recipients achieve registration by completing a few authentication and identity steps, and receive a TrustScore in less than 2 minutes. TrustScores can then be shared with others as a form of secure identity verification and trustworthiness token. For a quick video on what the process looks like from the recipient's end, click here.
