About Our Humans About Our Humans

Know Who's Real

Founded in 2012 in a Brooklyn sci-fi bookstore, HUMAN protects enterprises from bot attacks to keep digital experiences human. We have the most advanced Human Verification Engine that protects applications, APIs and digital media from bot attacks, preventing losses and improving the digital experience for real humans.

If you could look like a million humans online, what could you do?

Knowing who’s real is among a handful of enduringly hard problems on the internet. The economic impact is enormous, and so is the impact to modern security.


If you could look like a million humans online, what could you do? It’s harder to imagine many things you couldn’t do. Over the last decade we’ve stopped sophisticated human-like bots designed to do many bad things: take over accounts, manipulate popularity and consensus, steal sensitive data, interact with media and advertising, and snipe or scalp goods and services online, to name a few.


So what would the world look like without these malicious bots?


Keep Applications Human.
Keep Marketing Human.
Keep Advertising Human.
Keep Music Human.
Keep Connected TV Human.
Keep Social Media Human.
Keep E-Commerce Human.
Keep Banking Human.
Keep Healthcare Human.


Our Human Verification Engine protects applications, APIs, and digital media from bot attacks preventing losses and improving the digital experience for real humans. This unique approach enables us to detect, prevent and outwit bot populations of every level of sophistication to disrupt and takedown cyber criminals. We played the lead role in collaborating with the FBI, Google, Facebook and many other partners in the takedown of 3ve, one of the largest botnets ever defeated.

HUMAN is a pro-privacy, pro-human organization. Our privacy-sensitive code detects bots without tracking humans. And that privacy-centric approach has earned the trust of our partners and allowed us to reach an enormous global scale. Our code, running in countless websites and apps every day, verifies the humanity of more than 15 trillion interactions per week and affords us a footprint larger than any single anti-virus or threat detection platform on the internet.
