What CLEAR customers are saying:

"For the past five to six years, I have been using another database source which I was totally disappointed with. I no longer use the other database source due to its very low results and CLEAR’s ability to provide current information such as dates when the information was entered
by the data provider."

"Thomson Reuters products not only help make the world a safer, more secure place – they can also enable government agencies to locate individuals to ensure they receive timely disability benefits that are due."

CLEAR User, Department of Veterans Affairs

"There is no telling how much longer this lady would have kept moving from place to place, stealing innocent people's Social Security Numbers, and cheating creditors and the government. Thomson Reuters makes the world more safe and secure by providing a ‘complete’ picture of both individuals and businesses – and their benefits are not limited
to one area of the law."
