Social Media Report

What is it?

The social media report surfaces social media profiles associated with an individual and is mainly used for KYC and marketing purposes. Please note that our social media report cannot be used to make hiring or employment decisions, as it isn't FCRA compliant. This information is collected via a combination of public data sources and proprietary data sources. All collection of social media information is fully compliant with global data privacy regulations.

How does it work?

In order to run the social media report, there are 3 minimum valid combinations of information we can use - email address, phone number, full name, AND (location OR postal code). We won't always be able to surface the social media profiles associated with an individual. Passing in more information increases the likelihood we will have a match. This not only includes the combination of information above but also others such as date of birth.
