IP Lookup

Blocking users based on their IP address may be the oldest trick in the book but it’s also ineffective, as it leads to too many false positives. What’s much more valuable is gathering information about someone’s connection based on their IP. This is what we call an IP lookup.

The IP lookup process is a data enrichment process that lets you gather information about VPN or proxy usage, Tor connections, data center usage, and ISP as well as geolocation data. You can get remarkably precise location information, and even visualize it with our Google Maps widget.

The key is to get more information to use as part of your automated or manual risk scoring. You can decide if a VPN or Tor user is risky, or ignore certain parameters, and build models based on geolocation for your KYC and AML processes, iGaming bonus abuse, chargeback prevention, and much more.


What can SEON’s IP lookup do?

SEON’s reverse IP lookup tool gives you a wealth of information about a user based on their IP address only, which means you can gather this automatically instead of asking them. This includes their geolocation, whether they use VPNs or Tor, if they rely on harmful proxies, and much more

How do you leverage SEON’s IP lookup tool?

IP lookup tools are particularly helpful when combined with device fingerprinting and other data enrichment tools. This way you can profile users and highlight suspicious connections. You can protect customer accounts from takeovers, perform pre-KYC checks and even meet AML compliance.
