With a passion for accuracy and expertise, we help companies and internet users decide which websites are trustworthy, and why.
We aim to leave the internet a better place for future generations. We believe the internet can be a place where people find truth. We think individuals and businesses have a right to know who’s behind a website, product, or service in order to be empowered and make informed decisions.
That is why we strive to be the most trusted source informing the public about which online businesses are legitimate, legal, and trustworthy—and which are not.
We help companies of all sizes keep their services legal and safe for consumers. We share our expertise about high-risk online activity to empower businesses, governments, and consumers to make incremental changes that will result in a secure, more transparent internet.
To do this, we have a world-class team of experts in various regulatory and policy fields, including online healthcare. We act as an outsourced compliance and investigative department that puts user safety first.
