Advanced IP check lets you extract the IP address of the device your applicant uses for verification and run it through our databases to ensure it is genuine and secure.
Advanced IP check lets you:
- Ensure that cybercriminals do not intercept your applicant traffic.
- Reveal the applicant location.
- Find out if your applicant uses a VPN to connect to the internet.
An IP address—short for Internet Protocol address—is a unique numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol for communication. It serves as an identifier for the source and destination of internet traffic.
Your applicants' consent for personal data processing allows Sumsub to use built-in analytical tools to collect their IP addresses.
According to the internal logic, the system checks the data and returns the results as red, yellow, or green labels, depending on how much risk the specified IP address poses.
With IP risk assessment, the standard IP address check results are extended with the following:
|IP||The IP address of the device used by the applicant.|
|Location||The country and the city where the applicant is located.|
|Organization||The legal name of the applicant’s internet provider.|
|Internet provider||The company name of the applicant’s internet provider.|
|Connection type||Indicates whether the connection is residential or business.|
|Risk score||Indicates the risk score calculated by the system where 0 is safe and 1 is risky.|
|Risk level||Labels the detected IP address as safe (green), suspicious (yellow), or risky (red).|
|Proxy||Indicates whether a proxy server is used and labels it as safe (green), suspicious (yellow), or risky (red).|
|VPN||Indicates whether the VPN is used and labels it as safe (green), suspicious (yellow), or risky (red).|
|TOR||Indicates whether the detected IP address is tunneled through other devices and labels the connection as safe (green), suspicious (yellow), or risky (red).|
