KiKi Social is not another app for dating, likes or friends that don’t exist. It is an app to meet real people, with whom to make plans, from having a coffee to visiting the city.
Once the user locates a person nearby, they can chat with them and invite them to a plan. To guarantee the plan, you will need to invest 10 KiKi Coins, which the other person will receive if they accept the MEET.
Like all apps, KiKi Social has to earn the trust of its community and that of the new users it attracts. The problem is that Kiki Social has an added difficulty, since it integrates virtual currencies and unknown people, so it needs to take the trust of its users and the security of the platform to another level.
At KiKi Social they are aware that registering users with an email and a password does not represent any type of barrier for false users or identity theft. And this is sacred, KiKi Social is only for real people (= legitimate users).
So they looked for a way to address risks from the start: Alice Biometrics’ identity verification solution.
Kiki Social <> Alice Biometrics
We joined forces in the spring of 2020 with the aim of setting up a safe and 100% real community.
Alice‘s integration into the Kiki app was easy. In less than a morning, new Kiki Social users were already verifying their identity in order to register.
They just need to capture a selfie for our proof-of-life technology to confirm that they are real users. From there, they can be sure that their personal data is safe and that they are interacting with real people with the same concerns.
The Kiki Social team chose us because of our technology, but they stayed because of our focus on the end user and our dedication to reducing friction. In addition to our simplicity (we do not depend on expensive hardware or high-quality connections).
Since they integrated our technology, Kiki Social:
✓Offers a fast, convenient and frictionless registration process
✓Prevent phishing attacks with non-collaborative techniques
✓Detect fake accounts and duplicate users
Thanks to Alice‘s technology, we have made our users feel safe when interacting with the rest (avoiding false profiles), fulfilling one of our maxims: “your safety, our priority”.
