Default check. We return the geographic address (country, state, city, and zip code) that matches the user's IP address.
We check whether a user is using a VPN or proxy to access your application and restrict those users from being verified.
You can "geo-restrict" your users, meaning you can specify which countries or cities users are allowed to use your application from. Based on what countries or cities you restrict, we will check that a user's IP address is within those geographical boundaries.
User can be verified in <1sec as long as they have allowed location access.
Here's what your users will see if you use Metamap's prebuilt UX:
There are 3 main steps to set up the Location Intelligence merit:
- Setup your metamap on the dashboard
- Integrate or use MetaMap's Direct Link
- Process verification results
Step 1: Set Up a Metamap
The first step to setting up a Location Intelligence merit is to create a new metamap in the Dashboard.
Once you've created a new metamap, add the Location Intelligence product to the user flow, then use the switches to enable or disable the following options:
Step 2: Integrate
Use the MetaMap Button SDK integration if you want to use MetaMap's verification tools but design your own experience for your users.
To implement this:
- Setup the metamap for Location Intelligence in the dashboard
- Install and implement an SDK framework
Step 3: Process Verification Results
In the dashboard, visit the Verifications tab, and click on a Verification to review the results.
