We are currently in the process of revamping our verification processes, and this article will be updated over time as we finalize our approach.
Currently in Beta and only available to select drivers
We are currently rolling out this new biometric verification system to a selection of drivers and intend to do a full release in the spring of 2024.
Our Biometric Verification ensures drivers have a valid driver's license that has not expired, and performs a live selfie check to ensure the photo on their license matches their face.
It also adds an extra level of security by doing several biometric checks using AI on the driver's license itself, preventing fraud and scams.
|Drivers with a Biometric Verification will receive this badge on their profile, trips and in our search results, giving them more visibility and increasing safety in our community.
Available to all members
Our ID check allows members to submit a valid government-issued ID to be checked by our team, adding another layer of trust and transparency to our community.
Members can get their ID checked in Account > ID verification on the Poparide app or website, by uploading a photo or scanned image of their ID. We accept the following documents:
- A valid driver's licence or
- A government-issued ID document with a photo (e.g. passport or national ID card for visitors from outside of Canada)
|Drivers with an ID check will receive this badge on their profile, trips and in our search results. Many passengers and drivers look for this badge when deciding whether or not to travel with someone.
