Identity Verification Launched

By | June 1, 2009

We’re excited to announce a new feature allowing DandyID users to verify ownership of their various profiles. 



This is an important step, offering an additional layer of trust for our users. Verified services will be distinctly displayed in public DandyID profiles, and also noted in our API to notify third-parties and extensions. Shortly after this release, verifying a service will additionally disallow another user to “claim” the same identifier.



Utilizing the open authorization protocol OAuth, “FlickrAuth” and Facebook Connect, the initial six services available for verification are Twitter, Brightkite, MySpace, YouTube, Flickr, and Facebook – and we are continuing to add to this list.
