My Safe Corp. announced a security application called mysafeFriend on Facebook Platform. The application gives Facebook users an additional way to validate the identity of potential friends on the special network.
mysafeFriend was developed to help Facebook users decide who to friend by enabling existing friends to validate that people are whom they say they are. The more validations you collect, the more likely it will be that new prospective friends will have confidence they can safely friend you.
The application secures the virtual identity of Facebook users through a five level system designed to enable the user’s friends to validate their identification. To achieve the first level, five friends must validate a user’s identity by verifying basic information, such as name, email, gender and photo.
The higher the level of validation, the more friends must verify the user’s information. The first levels of validations are free of charge, and as the levels increase, more information must be validated. Personal information will only be viewed by the user’s Facebook friends using the mysafeFriend application. Confidential data, such as a Social Security number, won’t be shared with the members.
