our history

We are scientists, and we are passionate about solving complex problems.

When those problems involve everyone every time they push “send” on a payment, that kept us up at night. And the thought that they’re only getting worse as online cons and impersonation become easier with the increasing prevalence of deepfakes and advanced digital masks - well, that haunted us.

That is why we raised capital, put together a team, and built DoubleCheck. DoubleCheck was, and remains, the only platform that solves the fundamental problem of ensuring you are paying the right person.

And we’re only getting started. We’re constantly enhancing DoubleCheck, thinking through threats, so our customers don’t have to. All while staying easy to use, understand, and trust.
