Background Checks values you and your family's safety. We recommend you conduct a background check before you hire any potential sitters.
There are many companies you can find online, with plenty of options. We suggest finding a site that provides a basic report covering a Social Security Number Trace, a Country Criminal Records check, and a review of the Nation-wide Sex Offender list. Take a look here for how to perform a background check.
In addition to getting a background check on your sitter, we suggest having a call with them via our Telesafe system. It keeps a record of your call for your safety and security. Please also review our Security Info to find more information on avoiding scams.
