When Koo launched a voluntary self-verification feature this week, users can use their government-approved ID card to ensure they are who they say they are on the app.
It’s now more accessible for people to show who they say they are, which makes their thoughts and opinions more credible.
Voluntary self-verification helps genuine voices be heard.
It will be easy to tell if an account is self-verified if it has a green tick.
To use this feature, users will need to give their government-ID number, enter the OTP, and then get a green tick in their profile when they are self-verified.
Validation is done by people who the government has approved. The whole thing is done in a few seconds. During the process, Koo would not keep any records.
Co-founder and CEO of Koo, Aprameya Radhakrishna, said, “Koo has a lot of people who work there.” “It’s Koo’s job to make sure social media is a good place to be. We’ve made it so that users can now get their verification in less than 30 seconds through our safe and secure process. This is a big step toward making users more real and encouraging good behaviour on the platform.”
