Protecting Digital Media from All Fraud and Abuse
Media and streaming apps are often targeted by a wide variety of frauds. Account sharing is common, and often accepted on a small scale, but when five users become fifty, it can cause a problem. Subscription abuse is also an issue; dishonest users can use malicious tools to trick the system into offering cheaper signup prices or multiple free trials. To stop fraudulent users abusing the system, media and streaming apps must know exactly which malicious tools and techniques are being used to commit fraud, while still maintaining the convenience that good users signed up for.
