What is Protocol?

Proprietary data protection in a powerful automated tool

Protocol is a suite of 40+ rules across 7 modules, each of which protects a different area of data quality. Together they identify and eliminate any risk within our online participant pool.

Qualitative ability

Run pre-study tests for attentiveness, effort, and comprehension. We'll assess the results and provide a participant risk level.

Identity checks

Verifies that participants are real, unique people with comprehensive ID checks.

AI misuse

Detect any unusual behaviour and AI-like responses. This module works for any large language models, including ChatGPT, Claude and Gemini.

Locations verified

Ensures participants are where they say they are. Test that their physical and digital locations match and block participants from countries you don’t need.

Staying ahead of suspect practices

We adapt Protocol to new user behaviors, refining the checks and balances to stay ahead of untrustworthy tactics.
