  • Stay ahead of evolving fraud. 

1 in 4 new accounts sign-ups are fake

When new users are not verified during onboarding, companies risk allowing bad actors onto their platform. Bots, fake users, and bad actors can cause financial and reputational losses while impacting user abandonment rates, customer lifetime value, and net-promoter scores.

Fake accounts are used to:

  • Carry-out scams
  • Commit credit card fraud
  • Abuse promotion
  • Write fake reviews
  • Steal confidential information
  • Spam good users

Filter out fake accounts from the start

Detect fake accounts without sacrificing user experience. Collect a phone number during account registration to close the loophole on bad actors using burner email addresses. With phone number reputation you can assess the risk of every new user.
