What is a ConfirmID?
ConfirmID is like your digital name tag on Confirm, and it’s all about making your experience on Facebook Marketplace safer and more reliable. When you sign up for Confirm, we go the extra mile to make sure you’re a real, trustworthy person.
Here’s how it works: when you join, we ask for a photo of your government ID and a selfie. We team up with Persona, a trusted partner, to run some checks and make sure everything adds up. This process helps create your unique ConfirmID, like your own digital fingerprint.
Now, the cool part is that you can use this ConfirmID to make transactions with other people on Facebook Marketplace. When you’re buying or selling something, we generate a special link for your deal. Share that link with the other person, and they’ll be asked to join Confirm, too. Once you’re both in, you can see each other’s ConfirmID, giving you a clear picture of who you’re dealing with.
Think of ConfirmID as your way of knowing that the person on the other end is legit. It’s like a virtual handshake that helps filter out any not-so-great folks so you can focus on making a safe and secure deal.
In a nutshell, ConfirmID is your online ID card that adds an extra layer of trust to your Facebook Marketplace transactions. It’s simple, secure, and all about making your buying and selling experience worry-free.
