How does it work?

startSafe™ uses advanced security protocols and multi-factor identification to initiate a secure digital opening experience with consumers. An intuitive, question-based information collection process guides consumers through providing and confirming necessary information.

startSafe™ allows buyers depositing their funds using their mobile device. No app is required. Buyers simply click a link in a text message and are directed to a mobile friendly site to take photos of their checks. Information on wire safety and specific wiring instructions are also delivered securely for consumers to review and then acknowledge with an electronic signature.

To initiate a startSafe™ Mobile Deposit request, here are the two pieces of information we will require as soon as the escrow opens:


Since startSafe™ is a Digital Opening Package, an email address

is required for us to deliver this digitally.


startSafe™ utilizes a 2-factor authentication method, a method that requires the consumers to verify their identity using a randomized digital code we’ll send to their phone each time they attempt to log in. The consumers may choose to receive their security code through one of two ways: by text (mobile phone only) or voice call (land line or mobile).


startSafe™ every time!
