About SentiLink

SentiLink is building the modern identity bureau and bringing consumer identity into the 21st century. As the world shifts online, both individuals and institutions are increasingly exposed to new vectors of fraud. To tackle this complex and evolving problem, SentiLink verifies identities in real-time using proprietary clustering technology and the latest machine learning techniques. Our platform enables companies to provide their customers with a frictionless identity verification experience while stopping fraud before it occurs.

SentiLink is the leader in preventing synthetic fraud, an emerging fraud vector in which fraudsters open financial accounts under nonexistent people. Our partners include top-ten US banks, fintechs, and alternative lenders.
