Support and feedback from customers like you helps us deliver the right enhancements to expand your investigative reach.

New enhanced features

Marijuana related business

This content encompasses all entities that have Marijuana Related Business (MRB) connections in jurisdictions with marijuana licensing. Review related parties for other people and businesses that might be tied to an MRB, as well as receive alerts if anything changes. MRB information will now pull into a Quick Analysis Flag showing “Yes” when a subject is tied to an MRB entity.

Criminal records normalization

This content has been enhanced to normalize names of jurisdiction – specific criminal charges into a general category. This enhancement enables better understanding of what is meant by the criminal charge in a jurisdiction.

LinkChart Visualizer

CLEAR LinkCharts have been updated to perform without Java applets. Utilize CLEAR LinkCharts to expose relationships between entities that may not be readily apparent without extensive analysis. LinkCharts can also be exported to i2 Analyst Notebook for additional review.

Quick analysis flags

Additional flags are now triggered when a subject has an associate or relative with particular records tied to them. These include a Marijuana Related Business (MRB), Real-Time Incarceration & Arrest (RTIA), OFAC, Global Sanction, or PEP listing; a prison address on record; and address discrepancies.

Equifax credit header

CLEAR now has coverage for content from all three credit bureaus. The Equifax credit header content set includes over 352 million records, such as: name, last known address, SSN, month of birth, and more.

Passport Checker

Leverage Passport Checker to help identify potential passport forgery. Enter information found on a passport to generate two lines of Machine-Readable Zone (MRZ) text. Compare the output to the passport in question to determine if it’s valid.

Updated search capabilities

News searching

The ability to filter news searches to only US newspapers and remove duplicate news documents are available for all news searches. Search by names within a single search box that can be used without entering first or last name.

Query validation

The query validation that has been added to CLEAR will now provide error messages that offer greater context around issues with the query itself. This allows you to focus on what needs to be fixed with your query to return relevant results.

Person radius search

Additional mapping functionality has been added to the Map Analytics module. Now you can add a person result to the map to see the most recent individuals who have been residing at a particular address.

Experian business credit report search

Now you can search for business credit reports in CLEAR with an input exceeding 40 characters and not receive an error message.

Real-Time Incarceration & Arrest Records

This enhancement to CLEAR has removed the requirements to have Real-Time Incarceration & Arrest Records included when conducting a person search. RTIA information will now pull into a Quick Analysis Flag identified by a Yes/No indicator when records are found that match the subject's Name and Date-of-Birth and not contain a conflicting SSN.

Linked Search

CLEAR ID Confirm (CIDC) and CLEAR Risk Inform (CRI) users can now create link chart guides from CIDC and CRI standalone results.
