An example as follows:
On a dating site, a member encounters someone they are interested in meeting but wants to take one more step to ensure this individual is properly representing himself or herself. The member can send a “VideoValidate” ("Vv") request to the individual via email or text directly through the Vv website (https://vv.cool) or can create an account with VideoValidate and be issued a personalized URL (i.e., http://vv.cool/jdoe) which they can send to anyone.
The video is created by clicking on the "Reply" button or link embedded within the email or text which brings them to a video validate page that asks for permission to activate the camera on the device. By then clicking on the "record" button the video recording process starts. No application download is needed. The individual preparing the video will have the ability to take as many videos as necessary before replying with the one they want (many takes allowed until they hit approve and send). The requesting party then gets an email or text (depending upon what they chose) with the location data and video link that when clicked reveals the video which-upon viewing-is deleted.
Again, here is no app to download or settings to adjust. When the individual requesting the Vv views/plays the video it then self-deletes within two hours. There is no file/video stored. Further, The Vv platform will identify the individual’s general city and state location. However, NOT identify the exact location. The purpose here not being to provide location but to reveal a grossly misrepresented location. Location is generated by long/lat of the mobile device or IP address if the web.
Upon receiving a request, a member has 24 hours to respond or the request is considered rejected from which the requesting party can draw their own conclusions. Again, after viewing the video self delets and no record is kept.
