Verified Handles is a non-profit organizational database listing social handles to reduce and combat impersonation.The site was founded in late 2020 by realjamesh, a British computer scientist and businessman with experience in the world of social media and in particular, impersonation.
The database works by assigning unique VHID's (Verified Handles Identifiers) to entity and listing their socials and key data in an entry on the site. This ensures customers and fans can confirm the official presence of an entity's social account using the Verified Handles database.
The database has over 80,000 entries as of June 2021 and continues to grow as people apply and the team review the authenticity of entries.
