To ensure the safety of our users, every babysitter is subject to both ID verification and an online background check when they sign-up.
The ID check is automated and run in real-time during the the registration process. This check is performed by a third party provider called GBG Plc. Every sitter will also need to pass an online background check which cross-references them against various criminal watchlists and an adverse media check.
Again, this is an online check which happens at the point of sign-up.
Babysitters that fail the automated ID check are able to verify their ID by following the process outlined in our article on Manual ID Verification here.
Babysitters only have their profiles go live on the app once they’ve passed both of these checks.
