Trust & Safety - MyScoot

A 5 step verification process to make sure you attend fun, creep free parties

Now that we all are on the safe page, let us show you how we verify people.

First off, yes, we do put you in a stranger's room to party with 15 other strangers and this is the stuff of nightmares for a typical Indian mom. We've done 130+ parties till now, having helped more than 2500 strangers in un-strangering across more than 60 homes - all without a single mishap.

We use a 5-step process to verify/screen people

While you break out of your comfort zone and begin your MyScoot adventure we want you to know this homie has got you covered. How?

Algo
Think of this as the security guy at a bar - just that it doesn't have muscles and uses data to cross-verify the information you provide & churns out anybody who is part of any criminal list. It also does social profiling to not let anybody with a fake profile in. Also, it's a badass nerd, just saying.

Call
Once our algo clears you, we give you a quick verification call to make sure you're a genuine hooman being & a fit for our parties. They are generally conversational, sometimes funny and mostly awkward (we're learning). You're cleared to book any event you want after this verification.

Hosts
The hosts, who're good people like you and us, also have the power to approve/decline interests of the people who want to join their party by manually going through their profiles. You receive the exact address only after you get accepted.

At the Party
You'll find somebody from our team present at all the parties (expect some day time parties). Also, you'll be amongst other verified members in a social setting. The mathematical probability of all of them being creeps is next to none. That makes it safer than using carpool or staying at someone's place via a website that rhymes with ChairBnB.

Reviews/Feedback
We also have ratings & reviews as a feedback loop to churn out low-rated users and are very quick to ban someone that comes under doubt.

FAQs

What is MyScoot and its concept?

MyScoot is the Airbnb for home-hosted events. It's a cool new way to meet verified new people in your city and create all sorts of social connections with them.

How does it work?

You can either attend or host an event via the platform by becoming a verified member. Once you have created a profile and it has been verified by us, you can send your interest to join any event directly to the host. You can also host a party at your place and make money while meeting new people.

Is it safe to attend a MyScoot party at someone's house, especially for females?

What can I expect at a typical MyScoot Event?

Humans are different and they have different taste. Our hosts throw parties & do experiences they feel for.

My profile is under verification, how much time will it take for it to be verified?

We've got a great response ever since we launched in December 2017. The verification waitlist is pretty long and we only allow verify a limited number of people every week to maintain the quality of members on our platform. Your profile can take anywhere between 1 to 6 weeks to get verified. Also, people are constantly getting ahead in the queue by referring their friends to us.

Why aren't my requests to join parties getting accepted?

All requests to join the events are approved by the hosts themselves. There could be many reasons for you not getting accepted for the parties - uncomplete profile, sending your interest pretty late, the host having different requirements of guests, not having a clear profile picture, social profiles not linked, you're not sending a personalized message and many more. Make sure you've completed your profile and are sending a good personalised message to the host stating why do you wanna attend a particular event.

If you've booked anytime before 24 hours of the check-in time, the host will take an action up to 12 hours before the check-in time. If you've booked within 24 hours of the event check-in time, then the host might take some more time and take an action up to 3 hours before the check-in time. You receive the event address on the event days, some hours prior to the check-in time.

Do I get a refund if the host declines my request?

Yes, you get a full refund within 7 business days if the host has declined your request or has canceled the event after accepting your request.

Is anybody from the MyScoot team present at the parties?

Yes, at least one representative from MyScoot is present at every event (except some day events) to help out the host as well as to make sure you're comfortable attending a MyScoot event.

I've never attended a MyScoot party, will it be a good experience attending alone?

Yes, MyScoot's platform is meant to meet new people and form new connections. It is the best option in town to walk in alone to a party as a stranger and walk out with others as friends. Don't even think twice before attending it alone, we're sure you'll have an amazing time.
