The Zonafide Dapp: Preventing Identity Theft
Zonafide, a new Dapp that’s aiming to prevent identity theft, is in its “working prototype” stage of development.
As victims of identity theft themselves back in 2013, the Zonafide team Paul and Salena Worrall, started this Dapp to act as a preventative measure against this type of fraud.
How does it work?
Zonafide is simply a social and professional network that is used to prevent identity theft. Users can set up ‘Zones of Trust’ which is a group of people within the users’ social circle that they trust. This can range from personal to professional relationships. The ‘Zone of Trust’ group acts as a verifier for service providers to make sure a user did indeed want to open a new account or create a new insurance plan.
“To benefit from the protection of a Zone of Trust, you have to create your zone and start building trust in it. Service Providers are then able to check and verify that an action being carried out in your name is indeed legitimate.”
