Our Process

How we fight back

We collect data from hundreds of thousands of known deceitful business reviews to create baseline metrics that indicate fraud. Next, our artificial intelligence algorithms use these metrics to score business reviews as either real or fake. Last, we generate a clear and concise report that you can count on to help you take action against fake reviews.
Our Metrics

Identifying bad actors

Our analysis uses a combination of profile metrics, like the distance between businesses that a user has reviewed, and content metrics, such as the language found within individual reviews, to guide our machine learning algorithms.
Our promise

How do we build trust?

At Transparency, you can count on the accuracy of our reports and the integrity of our organization. Passing grades can’t be bought by dishonest businesses and we work hard to help remove fake reviews from public circulation to bring more honesty to the internet.
