Online identity check

Find the real person behind the online identity

How our online identity check works

Your email is like a digital footprint

91% of people with an email address have the same one for more than 3 years; and use it to make online transactions, to apply for and take out loans, to complete social profiles, and more.

We collect insights from thousands of entities

We have access to data from banks, global credit card issuers, global airlines, money transfer providers, marketplace lenders, travel websites, global retailers, eCommerce stores, shared economy, major computer manufactures and ticketing companies worldwide.

What we can tell from this data

We use an email address to globally review the use of this email and provide a risk score. If an email is associated with a high risk score, it may be rejected when going online to make a purchase, or apply for a loan or credit card for example.

If you have a high risk score, your email may be used for fraud, charge backs (purchase something and then disputing the purchase), insurance claims and fake social media profiles.

Risk score categories

Risk Band 6: Very High Risk

Emails that land in this category are either confirmed fraud from our network, or associated with a high level of risky signals. It is recommended these digital profiles to be manually reviewed.

Risk Band 5: High Risk

Typically, the queries in Risk Band 5 have been deemed risky due to velocity patterns, signals from a known risky IP, or the transaction details reflect a history of suspected fraud on our network.

Risk Band 4: Correct Customer Record

Users occasionally mistype, or misspell their email address, rendering them invalid or incorrect. These emails are reported in Risk Band 4. In most cases, this is a good customer who has simply entered their email incorrectly, so we recommend that you contact the customer to have them correct the information before proceeding.

Risk Band 3: Neutral Risk

When an email falls into this category, it simply means that we couldn’t find anything negative associated with that information, however, we were unable to find enough positive signals to push it into Risk Bands 1 or 2.

Risk Band 2: Minimal Risk

These emails have been around for a year or two, have other positive signals associated with an IP, or other variable that is passed to us. These pose very little risk to you, and we advise that you consider approving them, based on the rest of the circumstances surrounding the transaction or customer.

Risk Band 1: Lowest Risk

Queries that land in this category typically contain emails that have existed for at least four years, and have established a pattern of positive signals across our network. These are the customers we recommend considering putting through the fast track, or auto-approving in your system.
