Real people today have a complex web of connections to other people online through interactions like Facebook likes, tweets, check-ins and uploaded photographs. These complex webs cannot be faked by fraudsters. BeehiveID uses advanced identity technologies to comb through this data to establish the Beehive Identity Score. Online merchants use BeehiveID to prevent fraud, spam and abuse and ensure their user accounts are backed by genuine, unique individuals.


The founders have years of experience working with a wide variety of identity technologies, including social network analysis, face recognition, semantic text analysis, machine learning, sentiment analysis, and temporal profiling. BeehiveID performs deep analysis of social data and biometric face matching on the back end to ensure the connections represent real people. The company is a graduate of the TechStars accelerator program and is currently a member of the Austin Technology Incubator, part of the University of Texas at Austin.
