Matchmaking App Censio and Data Intelligence Company Cleara Join Forces to Create a Background Check Feature for Singles

Los Angeles, CA – Dating apps and sites have become the norm for anyone seeking romantic connection. Today, online dating and matchmaking has grown to over a $2.5 billion market, with revenue projections surpassing $3 billion for 2020.  

With this growth, unique challenges have come up for singles, particularly related to safety. 

Censio, an AI powered matchmaking app that prides itself on empowering its users to find “forever love” has taken the next step to prove itself as a leader in safe dating with the introduction of Censio Screening, its proprietary screening feature.

In partnership with Cleara, a national data intelligence company, Censio’s screening feature is designed to give daters the option to run a comprehensive background check on their matches. 

For founder and CEO, Cyr Mongo, introducing this layer of security into the app was a non-negotiable.

“In a world where online dating apps are becoming the backyard of sexual predators and criminals, it was imperative for us to partner with a company such as Cleara to create our Censio screening feature and allow our users to have the possibility to run a comprehensive background check on a match. At the end of the day, I want our users to feel safe while helping them find love.” 

The feature is built on the principle of transparency and neutrality, making no judgments on the information displayed. Instead, it only provides a breakdown of recorded infractions, using facial recognition technology.

Jim Hall, CRO and Founder of Cleara, is well-aware of the risks that singles encounter when online dating, and is excited for the opportunity to positively disrupt the dating space with Censio.

“Cleara carefully screens our partnerships for best in class technology and companies that are aligned with our values. Censio is a leader in the matchmaking field, and Cleara is committed to working with them to create a safe dating environment.” 

Wellington Moreno, CTO and Co-Founder of Censio, is aware that for some users, a background check could cause some uneasiness around privacy, so ensured to address these concerns during development.

“Part of the sign-up process includes an Opt-in feature, so Censio Screening is easily identifiable and accessible to our users.” 

Although no user is forced to utilize Censio Screening, however, Censio hopes the feature will be the impetus for positive change in the dating space. 

Carmelia Ray, Celebrity Matchmaker and Censio’s Chief Matchmaker is excited for the positive impact that Censio Screening will have for singles. 

“Censio Screening gives our users peace of mind and protection against potential scammers and would be predators and is an essential tool for relationship ready singles!”

Censio can be found in the Apple app store, online at and on Instagram at
