Advisory: Personator World – Improved Name Matching

Personator World will include new improvements to the name matching. The variations of matching will only be included in the Medium confidence match category and is currently only available for select data providers within the US. The new matches will return a new set of result codes (seen in the table below).

All existing result codes will not be modified. We will contact the necessary individuals to ensure these changes will not affect your business.
