Uncover what social media background checks that rely on AI miss!

AI used for social media screenings:

  • frequently misses important key findings
  • heavily relies on keywords to find flags
  • is unable to reliably review audio, video, and sometimes images
  • does not have the ability to review private profiles (with permission)
  • lacks the ability to recognize more unique flags
