We’ll check phone numbers, email addresses, social media accounts, and government paperwork to get a full picture of each of our members and see how they’ll fit in to the Roomdock community. Identity verification helps us prove that each listing on our site has a real, friendly person behind it. No scams, no fakes—period.
IP Address Verification
With Roomdock’s IP address authentication, you’ll know for sure that the listings you see have real people behind them. Our team cross references the location of each user with the location of their IP address to help verify member identities. If something looks fishy, we’ll give them a call to figure out the details. Trust comes first at Roomdock—and shady listings don’t make the cut.
