While anonymity is a major advantage of using the Internet, it is also one of its biggest disadvantages. There are numerous situations in which you need to verify the identity of the person you are dealing with online e.g. while buying or selling something. To help accomplish this, a web service called TruLy was created.
TruLy is a web service that helps verify your online identity. The site lets you enter your detailed information such as full real name, email address, birthday, and last 4 digits of your SSN. Your data is then cross-referenced with a national database of government and public data. Such verification helps you quickly verify your identity whenever you are dealing with anybody online.
Your verified ID can be shared through a direct URL; you can get a custom URL too for $4.95 per year. This can be a big plus when you are using buying/selling online or using online dating services.
