Building a Community of Trust

Safety and Trust - Number verification system

Our mobile number verification system makes sharing rides on BlaBlaCar even more reliable and safe! Learn how, and get your number verified now.

Safety and trust are key concerns of people who wish to car share. To ensure we have this covered, we have created the mobile verification system, enhancing trust and transparency in our community.

How does mobile number verification help?

By verifying your mobile number (you must be logged in to the site to access this page) you show other members that the mobile number you identified on the site is indeed yours. We will then link your profile to that mobile number and not just your email.This ensures that your profile is trustworthy, and thereby increases your chances of having people contact you to share a ride!

BlablaCar - Mobile number verification

Verify your mobile number in 2 simple steps

BlablaCar - Mobile number verification

  • Access the 'Verifications' section under your 'profile' (you must be logged in to the site to access this page).
  • Click on 'Verify this number' and follow the steps. You will need to enter your mobile number if you have not done so already, then click on 'Verify my number now'. You will receive a text message with a 4 digit verification code (it should be very quick). Simply enter this code on the website, and that's it, you're done!

Once verified you will have a verification seal displayed right below your number. This will reassure the other members of the community that you are a person who is genuinely interested in sharing rides, encouraging them to contact you!

Some other trust & safety features

  • Our rating system between drivers and passengers, which allows everyone to evaluate the reliability of the person they wish to share a journey with, before a trip.
  • Our real time customer service. We reply individually to ALL the requests we receive.
  • Moderation of the community by blacklisting people who don’t respect our code of conduct.

See how BlaBlaCar works!
