The smartest background screening platform on the market
Ferretly incorporates artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze posts and images across 12 distinct risk classifications. We use advanced machine learning and natural language processing to flag posts for specific risk factors. Ferretly processes thousands of posts from a single subject in seconds and you get a more thorough analysis than a human could achieve in hours analyzing the same set of posts. Here's a sample of some of the risks we can detect.
Legally compliant and thorough analysis using Artificial Intelligence
Ferretly makes running social media background checks effortless. Our AI analyzes up to 7 years (10 years for non FCRA) of public posts* from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and TikTok as well as web and news articles and aggregates the risk factors and sentiment into an easy to understand score.
Ferretly analyzes text and images from every post including original posts, likes, replies, reposts, and comments. We even analyze memes and custom image content based on your keywords.
Ferretly follows FCRA and EEOC guidelines and conforms to both Federal and State guidelines when it comes to social media privacy.
Ferretly can produce a social media report in under 30 minutes* in most cases. Why wait several days to get a result? Add your subjects, associate their social profiles and press run check.

* Note times will vary depending upon image makeup and other factors. Social media platforms may place limits on the number of posts Ferretly can access, therefore it is possible that not all posts will be included in the analysis.
ADD YOUR SUBJECT
In Ferretly you can add a subject, enter their name, location, age, and more. You can also add their social media profiles, if known.
ADD SOCIAL PROFILES
There are two ways to search for social media profiles for a candidate. You can search for your subject using our people search and/or do a name or username search on the individual social media platforms.
RUN BACKGROUND CHECK
If your plan includes Analyst Assistance, you can Assign the subject and our analysts will take care of the rest – returning a fully human redressed report from the output of the AI. Or you can simply run the background check and download the report.
