How Online Background Screening Works

Social Media Screening Made Simple

We strive to provide you with comprehensive data, but never at the expense of personal privacy. Our FCRA-certified team leverages a proprietary augmented intelligence platform to review and flag content in four business-related primary categories:


  • Racist, Sexist, or Discriminatory Behavior
  • Sexually Explicit Material
  • Threats or Acts of Violence
  • Potentially Illegal Activity


In addition, Social Intelligence is the only solution of its kind to provide the SI Protected Class Safety Feature™. This unique and important feature removes all protected class information before you receive our reports so your candidates and employees can rest assured that their personal life and protected information is not used against them in an employment decision.

Step 1: The Candidate

Submit a candidate for screening by entering the same information you would find on their resume.

Step 2: The Search

Our software builds a complete web presence profile for your candidate while our analysts verify their identity and review content on matched sites.

Step 3: The Report

Your report is ready. You can review your candidate’s social media scores and examples of negative content found. All protected class information is redacted on the report, for their protection and yours. If we don’t find anything bad, the report will return with a “No Pertinent Information” status.
