How Does Clutch Verify Reviews?

Clutch verifies reviews through a mix of LinkedIn and research. If you don’t provide enough details to verify the review, we will reach out via email for more information.

Every client review goes through a thorough verification process to confirm the reviewer’s:

  • Proof of identity and work history
  • Proof of project or services

To protect our process, we do not provide specifics about our verification methods, but we do use LinkedIn to help identify reviewers. 

You’ll need a LinkedIn account to be able to log into Clutch. Once you create your profile, you can leave a review. Clutch uses information from your LinkedIn profile, such as your email address and contact information, to verify the review.

If we can’t verify you or the project, but the information is still useful for buyers, we’ll publish the review as unverified.
