Online casino operators who constantly have to find new ways of protecting customer safety will be pleased to hear that there is a new, and improved, way of ensuring the security of their players as well as the operators themselves. PlayerVerify is a new system that makes it easier for players to protect themselves against identity theft and other online scams.
In the past, players were generally required to send in personal documents in order to verify their identity. While these documents were required to protect their safety, by sharing these documents these players sometimes put their personal details at risk. Details from sensitive documents like driver’s licenses and passports were at risk of being stolen by hackers, therefore discouraging many potential players from playing.
PlayerVerify allows players to upload their documents on the system’s secure server. The information is then made available to the authorised online casino operator that requires the data for verification purposes. The player then provides the operator with their secure code enabling the operator to access the personal information. Data is therefore never sent across unsecure lines of online transfer.
Online casino operators will also benefit from this new service because staff won’t have to sort through vast numbers of faxes and emails from all their customers and they won’t have to worry about proper storage for such sensitive items.
It seems likely that more and more online casinos will use this system or other systems like it in the near future.
