Are You a Human, LLC

Venture Round in 2014
Are You a Human is the curator of The Verified Human Whitelist™, which allows anyone using it to be certain they are addressing a verified human before they serve content, services or ads. Automated programs, called bots, account for 59% of overall internet traffic today – and, as the world becomes more digital, this will only increase. Bots clutter the Internet with fake social media profiles, hacked accounts and are responsible for nearly all fraud. Ultimately, they make it more difficult for real humans to get what they need from the Internet, and more difficult for companies to address humans with high quality content and services cost-effectively. This includes e-commerce, online banking, social media, and, of course, media and advertising. Instead of searching for bots, which evolve in a matter of days, they find and verify humans by analyzing natural user behavior across millions of websites. After they have consistently seen and verified a user as human, they’re added to the Whitelist™, and then re-verified over and over again each day. Bots can’t consistently look and act like real humans on every page, every day, so they’re never added to the list, and all that's left are real humans.
