Features and Benefits

Persistent Fake Social Media Account Search

Social Discover scans the social web to find fake social media accounts affiliated with your brand. With just a few clicks, you can see how many branded accounts exist on each social network. Social Discover continuously scans for any new accounts based on your saved search parameters, so you’ll know right away when someone attempts to impersonate your brand for unauthorized or fraudulent use. Then you can act immediately to protect your brand. With Social Discover, you can:

  • Automate discovery of your brand’s accounts
  • Search accounts by image to brand fraud and misuse
  • Persistently scan for fraudulent and brand protest accounts
  • Receive alerts for risky accounts that require takedown or legal review
  • Send automated alerts to other stakeholders (such as legal or HR) when risky accounts are detected
