A brand new mobile app aimed at preventing identity theft has been released, it is called ThisIsMe.
ThisIsMe app allows consumers to verify who they’re doing business with. It is South Africa’s first online identity and verification authority.
Mark Chirnside, the CEO of ThisIsMe says they’ve spend a year looking at various things that could put someone’s identity under threat when transacting online.
Listen to the full conversation on The Pippa Hudson Show:
All they have to do is to type in the cell phone number of the person they are buying from and the person they are buying from on the other side enters their ID number- we do a home affairs check and tell you the name of the person, that’s the basic of it.— Mark Chirnside, CEO of ThisIsMe
Just go to Apple store or Google play store to download ThisIsMe, register and you are ready to go— Mark Chirnside, CEO of ThisIsMe
