We're pleased to announce that we've named ID.me, the market-leading digital identity and credentials network, as our official identity verification partner.
Here are the facts: online fraud and identity theft are, in a word, rampant. In the year 2023, hardly a month passes by without one megacorporation or another stepping forth, hat in hand, to lament to its customers that there has been an unfortunate breach.
While no company can guarantee with absolute certainty that similar misfortune won’t at some point befall them, there are a lot of things one can do to safeguard against it. At FEVO, we’re taking a multifold approach to the problem.
This year, we’ve established a new data compliance department led by some of the most experienced hands in the industry. And with the launch of our partnership with ID.me, our platform will now offer some of the most sophisticated identity-verification software available for event-ticketing purchases. These new layers of security will reduce fraud while adding protection for merchants and consumers alike.
“ID.me is delighted to join forces with FEVO to fight ticket fraud and provide fans with a better user experience,” said Blake Hall, ID.me co-founder and CEO. “Bots and ticket scalpers have been a problem for far too long, with fans and artists paying the price. Integrating ID.me into the FEVO platform will provide fans and artists a greater sense of security, while taking a big step towards solving this important problem.”
As part of the implementation, ID.me will add its identity verification tool into the FEVO Social Checkout™, offering identity and group affiliation verification along with targeted offers to its 117M+ members.
“Industry-wide, ticket fraud has doubled since 2022, with fraud chargebacks representing a significant risk in the leagues and industries we support,” said FEVO CEO and Founder Ari Daie. “Given that reality, ID.me stood out as a terrific partner to help us mitigate the risks that face our consumers, clients and partners.”
