As the Web progresses, people are going to demand more transparency and more control over their data. Google plays a huge role in this, as they are the ultimate gatekeepers of the information available on the Web. When it comes to public records, BeenVerified plays a very similar role.

Last month, we asked our users to share their experiences using BeenVerified and the feedback we received was amazing! Your stories created a flood of positive energy throughout our organization and we can’t thank everyone enough for their thoughtful submissions. While each individual story was important in its own way, we can only give away five iPads. If we gave away anymore, we just may have to increase our pricing! (kidding)
A big congrats to our five winners. Now, without further ado, check out the stories from our featured winners. Enjoy!
