This is a partnered post with SafetyPIN Technologies.

Have you ever watched the show, “Catfish?” It’s a reality TV show about the truths and lies of online dating. “Catfish” is about individuals who chat online, build relationships and often times find that the people they “thought” they were talking to aren’t really who they appear to be. In this day and age, we use technology for a lot of things – from making purchases to hiring a babysitter to meeting people – and if we don’t protect ourselves and our families, it could be a very dangerous place to be. That’s where SafetyPIN comes into play!

SafetyPIN was created to make the internet a safer place for all of us. Whether you’re hiring a sitter, selling a couch, renting your place, or even dating…whatever sites or apps you use…asking for a SafetyPIN is the best way to know if you can trust someone you met online BEFORE you meet them in real life! And assure them that you are, too. A SafetyPIN™ is like a ‘Trust Badge’ for the internet age.

How does SafetyPIN work? SafetyPIN uses this really cool proprietary 4-pronged process that goes beyond the standard background check. They do a background check, but also screens someone’s criminal, financial, and personal history. They take that information and combine it with a behavioral profile If you meet their criteria, you’re awarded a unique SafetyPIN you can share with people on sites like, TaskRabbit,, Airbnb, CouchSurfing, and your favorite dating sites…anywhere. Founder and CEO of SafetyPIN Technologies, Jenny Thompson, shares about how she wished SafetyPIN had existed when she hired Sarah off Craigslist to watch her dogs and then how the sitter faked her death…read HERE!!!

I love SafetyPIN and feel confident that a person with a SafetyPIN is safe to be around my family and me. SafetyPIN has access to over 10,000 data sources and works with expert advisors who have over 60 years’ experience in criminal profiling and clinical psychology. And the whole process is really simple and painless.

You simply provide some basic information and answer a few short questions. The application literally takes only about 5 minutes to complete. Then, once someone’s approved (usually within 24 hours), they can share your SafetyPIN with anyone on any website. And SafetyPIN isn’t just concerned about keeping you safe. They keep your data safe, too. Your data and your privacy are protected using up-to-the-minute encryption and security technologies, as well as best practices. Plus, people can ONLY see your SafetyPIN ID – never your personal information. Plus, you control who can even see that!

SafetyPIN was definitely something we needed in this age of technology and I’m so glad it’s here! It definitely makes me feel so much safer when it comes to hiring a handyman, renting a VRBO when traveling or pretty much having anyone who’s going to be around me and my family. Starting today, I’m going to ask for (and verify!) a SafetyPIN before we hire anyone new. And you should, too! Get more information on how to get started by visiting SafetyPIN today!
