Designing the experience
Recreating reusable assets from LinkedIn's UI
This feature is nested inside "Open to Opportunities". This features is targetted towards active job seekers. The main function is to help users recognize scams before it occurs.
Smart Search Scan- Use Case
Utilizing Google reverse imaging and Grammarly API to check the authenticity of a profile. This is useful because a large portion of scammers' profiles utilize stock photos and have a trend of bad grammar & spelling errors.
Prompted when a possible scammer messages a person with an offer or opportunity.
Recognizing identity theft
Scammers often use another user's profile picture, if they aren't using a stock photo. Here the interface shows a user getting notified when their profile is being used by someone else.
What if we wasted their time instead?
Scammers always find another way to scam people despite getting caught.
What if instead of just banning or deleting their profile, we could occupy their time, with a seemingly interested person (AKA a LinkedIn bot made to answer wisely and with interest). This feature was inspired by Youtuber and grey hat hacker, Jim Browning.
