At Vivastreet, providing a safe and trusted service to our users is our top priority.
This is why we’ve decided to launch photo verification on Vivastreet, a feature for independent sex workers to validate their identity on their Vivastreet advert.

Do you have an advert in an adult-related category?
If so, you can verify your photo to create a trusted profile that further proves to users your ad is genuine.
Photo verification can help turn potential clients into long term clients. This feature will give users the confidence to trust your service, increasing the number of genuine contacts your ad receives, resulting in more business opportunities.
