Who We Are


At Two Hat, our mission is to help social networks build safe and healthy online communities by removing negative interactions to make room for positive human connections. We believe that everyone should be free to share online without fear of harassment or abuse.

 

Processing nearly 30 billion interactions a month, Two Hat enables clients across a variety of social networks and gaming companies to deliver positive user experiences by detecting and filtering harmful content in real time, before it reaches the community. More than just a filter, we provide an all-in-one content moderation solution, with data analysis, content escalations, flexible workflows, auto-moderated user reports, and more. Clients benefit from our scalable, autonomous, and transparent solution, as well as our team of industry experts who consult on best practices and industry standards. As a leading provider of content moderation best practices, we believe we can restore the original purpose of the internet - to empower positive human connection and facilitate healthy social online interactions. 

 

Removing illegal content is a shared responsibility. To that end, we work with international governments and  law enforcement in helping to prevent the targeting of children through the internet, and train AI to detect new child exploitation material.
