Advanced analytics for better identity management.
LexisNexis uses a proprietary linking technology in combination with our own unique identifier, LexID®, to resolve, match and manage information for more than 276 million U.S. consumer identities. This patented linking and clustering method is the machine behind many LexisNexis products that leverage authentication, verification and other identity management capabilities
How do LexID® and LexisNexis linking technology work together?
When we acquire a new record, LexisNexis assigns our own unique identifier, LexID®. LexID is not derived from personally identifiable information, like a social security number.
Records with intersecting data points are linked together by LexisNexis® patented Scalable Automated Linking Technology and are then assigned the same LexID.
Identity profiles are continuously updated to ingest new records. This dynamic process paints an extremely accurate picture that accounts for identity changes over time.
