As part of our industry-leading Trust & Safety features, house & pet sitters registered with TrustedHousesitters have the option to complete three levels of ID checks and verification. A sitter’s verification level can be easily identified by the Trust Badge which appears above the heading on their house sitter profile and below their profile picture in relevant search results.
The Basic level is an email and phone number verification, plus at least one external reference. The Standard level is an ID, document and address check completed by a third party verification provider.
To complement our trust and safety features we encourage sitters to request third party references and member reviews on their profiles.
