Location Intelligence

Confirm an individual’s location, with the ability to restrict geo-locations and VPN usage.


Use the Location Intelligence tool to accurately locate your customers around the world. Location Intelligence can return information about an individual's location based on IP address or GPS coordinates, whether they are using VPN or proxy, or if they are in a geo-restricted region.

  • High-Accuracy Check

    Enabling this check tracks an individual's location through GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular networks.
    If this check is not enabled, location is tracked by default via IP address of the device used.
    We can return the geographical address — country, state, city, and zip code — associated with the GPS settings on the individual's device.

  • IP Check

    Default check. We return the geographic address (country, state, city, and zip code) that matches the individual's IP address.

  • VPN/Proxy Check

    We check whether the individual is using a VPN or proxy to access your application. You can configure a restriction of VPNs to prevent individuals from being verified.

  • Geo-restriction Check

    You can "geo-restrict" your customers, meaning you can specify which countries or cities individuals are allowed to use your application from. Based on what countries or cities you restrict, we will check that the individual's IP address is within those geographical boundaries.

Key Metrics

The individual can be verified in <1sec as long as they have allowed location access.

To implement this:

  1. Setup the workflow for Location Intelligence in the dashboard
  2. Install and implement an SDK framework

Step 3: Process Verification Results

In the dashboard, visit the Verifications tab, and click on a Verification to review the results.
