According to our research, users with toxic usernames are more likely to exhibit violent behavior and are around 2.2x more likely to have their account suspended by moderators. Leaving usernames unmoderated might legitimize toxicity and encourage others to follow, while preventing users from naming themselves in such a way sets the tone from first engagements within your community.

It’s the most effective solution for guarding your communities against disruptive, toxic and illegal identities. We take our proactive Neuro-Symbolic approach to detect hidden meanings in usernames and to find the original attempt at creating a toxic username.

Samurai ensure your communities are free from creative adversarial attacks, while moderating offensive identities that could disengage other users or incite further abuse.

  • reduces the number of aggressive actors in your community
  • reduces churn related to toxicity
  • increases the health score of your online community
  • fosters a healthy community from the very beginning
