Who are we?

While technology has brought us closer than ever, it has also opened up new ways for people to harass, bully, threaten, scam, and overall hurt each other. At Spectrum, we empower our clients to recognize these behaviors on their own platform according to their own community guidelines. Using the signal from our solutions, platforms can more effectively enforce those guidelines and promote a healthier environment for their users to become a community.  You can read about the work we're doing at our blog or our white papers.
