PhoneID Score provides a reputation score, a risk assessment, and a recommendation for action, based on a user’s phone number. Online service providers and mobile apps currently use PhoneID Score to determine if they will issue a new account, allow but monitor a new account, or block the registration. The score, risk assessment and recommendation are produced in real time, based on a scoring algorithm which is updated dynamically in response to user behavior, traffic patterns, reported fraud and global fraud trends.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by Network Products Guide for our work on PhoneID Score,” said Steve Jillings, CEO for TeleSign. “We are very proud of the product’s proven ability to prevent large scale fraud for our customers.
