We have six degrees of protection against fake content. Each one separately can be bypassed, but all together – very unlikely.

1. Geolocation.

Feedback about any place can be written only by the user who checked in there. 2.

Community trust rating. If users come to the restaurant on the recommendation of Onlife and see a clear discrepancy with what they have read in the application, they write honest reviews and lower the rating of the recommender.
