Bullying & Harassment
Cyber bullying & harassment continues to grow impacting users of all ages. Sadly, the majority of young people have witnessed or experienced cyberbullying. The impact is anxiety, depression, and self-harm, highlighting the urgent need for effective solutions.

Child Safety
The numbers are daunting. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children identifies over 100 million reports of suspected child sexual exploitation, nearly all related to images and videos of children that are circulating on the internet, some even live streamed. ActiveFence provides contextual AI models combined with leading human intelligence to help protect children by detecting and reporting CSAM, exploitation, and grooming online.

Disinformation
Disinformation is the new malware. It has been weaponized and professionalized and can lead to physical world incidents, as more people get information from less reliable sources. ActiveFence empowers you to tackle the threat of conspiracy theories, health misinformation, dangerous trends, coordinated narratives, and election integrity risks, to promote civil discourse and healthy user engagement. See Our Latest Disinformation Resources.
Graphic Violence
Quickly detect imagery that promotes violence and take action aligned to your policy.
img
Graphic Violence
Today’s reality is that physical violence often stems from chatter in the online realm. Not only is real-world violence inspired by provocative content on the web, but threat actors create online communities in which they promote assaults on vulnerable populations, brutality, bloodshed, and more. ActiveFence helps with both the quick AI-based detection of such imagery on your platform, as well as providing insights on the key actors and platform gaps attributing to its existence.
Hate Speech
Tackle hate speech with coverage in 100+ languages, slang, l33tspeak, emojis, & more.
img
Hate Speech
All platforms have to contend with the challenge of hate speech, impacting the safety and wellbeing of their users, and business. This toxic material needs to be removed fast. ActiveFence’s multilingual contextual AI models available in 100+ languages to proactively detect and take action against hate speech, no matter the region, to protect the online safety of your users and reduce emergence of real-world hate crime implications. See Our Latest Hate Speech Resources.
Human Exploitation
Map sophisticated networks manipulating your platform to exploit at-risk populations.
img
Human Exploitation
The internet provides robust infrastructure for illicit global operations for human exploitation. Often in developing countries, these activities are coordinated for economic benefit. Human exploitation networks take advantage of UGC platforms to promote forced marriages and sex trafficking, domestic servitude, and illegal adoption. ActiveFence provides the cross-platform visibility needed to proactively tackle such abuse, in over 100 languages. Read our report on Sex Trafficking in Ukraine.
Illegal Goods
Identify the vendors & bad actors utilizing your platform to promote illegal goods & services.
img
Illegal Goods
As with the wide majority of illegal activities, the trade of illegal goods and services is coordinated in clandestine networks. ActiveFence monitors threat actor communities across the web (in dark web forums, instant messaging groups, fringe websites, etc.) revealing the violative actors, methodologies, and sales operations conducted through your platform - so that you can implement the appropriate mitigation efforts. Read our report “Reverse Engineering an Illegal Drugs Network.”
Fraud
Detect fraudulent activity posing harm to users, to avoid damage to reputation & revenue.
img
Fraud
ATO attacks account for billions of US dollars in losses every year. From online gaming cheating to impersonating applications, the internet provides fertile ground for fraudulent activities incentivized by economic gain. ActiveFence’s experienced teams of OSINT and cyber researchers help you proactively mitigate fraud by providing comprehensive detection and reporting on the emerging risks to your users’ privacy, safety, and integrity. Read our report "Fraud on Online Marketplaces".
Nudity & Adult Content
Take action on inappropriate nudity and sexual content - as defined by your guidelines.
img
Nudity & Adult Content
Exposing inappropriate content to sensitive audiences can lead to negative public sentiment and user churn. Every online platform crafts its own policies in accordance to its user base. Cookie-cutter solutions can’t accurately solve the problem for all platform types. With ActiveFence you define violation risk score thresholds to detect content based on your unique policies. Accurately and efficiently remove nudity and adult content to maintain a safe and trusted space for all of your users.
Profanity
Accurately identify profanity in over 100 languages and in slang, l33t speak, emojis.
img
Profanity
Profanity is not always straightforward to identify. Platforms can do their best to remove profane content, but the use of non-English text, emojis, and regional slang can get past the most experienced content moderators. ActiveFence’s multilingual AI models accurately detect profanity in over 100 languages, including slang, l33t speak and emojis, keeping your platform clean and your users safe, all in real-time.
Suicide & Self-Harm
Rapidly identify suicidal intentions and take immediate action against self-inflicted abuse.
img
Suicide & Self-Harm
Online suicide and self-harm violations are spread by users who are as much the victims as they are the perpetrators. From eating disorders to graphic daily updates of self-inflicted physical harm, users build extensive online communities which promote dangerous behaviors. Ensure the safety and wellbeing of your users by proactively implementing ActiveFence’s technology and deep insights to make accurate and informed enforcement decisions. Read our report “Trends in Self-Harm”.
Violent Extremism
Identify extremist chatter & activities before they lead to potentially lethal consequences.
img
Violent Extremism
With endless forums & hidden communication channels, terrorism & violent extremism thrive & spread on the web. Online dissemination of propaganda can rapidly incite real-world violence. To disrupt these high-risk networks, ActiveFence proactively tracks this content, and identifies the evolving infrastructure and evasion techniques (such as obfuscated keywords and encrypted messaging) utilized to help extremist activities go undetected by moderators.
