Account sharing

Nowadays, user names and passwords for websites with paid content are widely published online on forums and blogs. Sometimes legitimate account owners also share their user names and passwords with friends and family. Account sharing can cause extreme server load and result in financial loss to your company. It is crucial to use software that can detect and prevent this from happening.
SiteDefensor uses a novel approach to detect and prevent account sharing and at the same time enables legitimate users to access the website without any inconvenience. We use a novel approach for detecting account sharing based on analysis of user’s IP addresses and a geolocation service. The users who share their accounts can be automatically banned from the website or optionally admin can manually confirm each case.
