A big part of our fraud prevention and also legal compliance is that we are required to run identification checks on all users when they are the buying party for the first time in a transaction.
We understand that providing this information can seem a little unnecessary. However this is a key part of making Limbo a secure and safe way to transact. It also allows us to associate transactions with real people if we ever need to file a police report for fraudulent users or criminal activity.

If this badge is showing on a person's profile that you are wanting to transact with, it means that they have been ID verified and have passed. Do remember that only buyers are required (at this stage) to be ID checked by law, however you can ask the seller if they have not been verified to do this for your peace of mind. This is an option within the side menu of the app if you have not yet been ID verified.
