Why do I need to verify my email for membership?
- The reason why you need to verify your mail address is one of the simple security methods to ensure you are not being ‘spoofed’ by someone that is not you trying to pretend to be you.
- Also, the measure gives me a ‘heads up’ that you are joining the site and I can review your info to be sure you should be a member of our family website.
- If I did not require this email verification step in the membership sign up process, someone could become a member and start using the website, communicating, view other private member profiles, etc. before I realize whether they are a legitimate family member or not and block them off or not.
