GamerSafer’s mission is to scale safety and fair play experiences to millions of players worldwide. Fraud, crime, and toxicity are present in many online interactions, compromising user experience, lifetime value and engagement.
The co-founders of GamerSafer, a former executive from the gaming industry and a social impact entrepreneur, both gamers and parents of gamers, saw an opportunity to make an impact in this industry.
Bullying, harassment, hate speech, sexism, racism, identity theft, fake or duplicated accounts, bots, scammers, groomers, and predators are common challenges whenever there is dynamic user interaction.
GamerSafer offers to multiplayer games and Esports platforms a digital identity management system to attack the root causes of those challenges. Using computer vision and artificial intelligence technologies, players are verified and authenticated with a face scan in less than one second. To meet different game needs, this process can take place in different stages of players’ experiences (pre-game or in-game). This data enrichment, compliant with all data privacy regulations worldwide, enables a prevention first approach to community management, helps platforms to improve matchmaking systems, and drives user accountability.
With this innovative technology, platforms break the vicious cycle of offenders creating multiple accounts to attack other players or the game itself. The player is still anonymous, but has a protected account with its unique biometric coordinates; preventing abuse, evasion of bans, and perpetration of harms.
GamerSafer technology is cross-platform to support the whole gaming ecosystem and the integration process is simple and customizable. Among the advantages, aside from player verification, there are additional relevant insights like player age estimation, verifiable parental consent for transactions, in-game preferences to tailor a game’s matchmaking, and much more.
In Esports, securing competition integrity is essential from amateur to professional levels. Cheaters are always evolving methods to empty the prize pools, but without a proactive solution like GamerSafer’s, even when they are caught and banned nothing prevents them from returning and repeating the aggression.
In multiplayer games, the player’s preferences help to create safer environments with improved matchmaking. Game developers can also leverage age-appropriate matching or combine the digital identity insights with moderation solutions to prioritize tickets and optimize operational costs.
Safety is longitudinal, security is paramount, and privacy is a right to all. GamerSafer takes those pillars to create a strong foundation and fight the problem at the source and impact the industry to move towards a more fair and fun future where every player feels empowered to game on.
“SAFETY IS A FUNDAMENTAL PRECONDITION TO CREATING ONLINE SPACES WHERE PLAYERS CAN EXPERIMENT, FORM, MAINTAIN, AND DEEPEN CONNECTIONS. THAT’S WHY WE FOUNDED GAMERSAFER.”
