About Us - CheckSocial

The CheckSocial story

We believe that digital footprint checks should be part of every hiring decision.

Over 70% of recruiters conduct digital footprint checks on candidates. Most of these checks are being completed manually, taking anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours.

The majority of this time is spent on conducting searches on search engines and social media sites, trying to identify the candidates online accounts and reviewing related content to get a picture of how the candidate portrayed themselves online.

So, we had an idea.

We could build a platform that could automate all of this search and analysis effort and provide people who needed to conduct background checks with a simple, concise, accurate report that highlighted any red flags and gave a snapshot of the candidate’s digital reputation.

Our roots

CheckSocial is a cloud based software application developed by WorldStack on the Providence platform.

Providence is an OSINT platform that uses machine learning technology to automate the collection and analysis of public data from the surface, deep and dark web in order to discover insights that lead to better decision making.
