NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- ActiveFence, the leading trust & safety technology company, announced today that it will be renewing its partnership with the World Economic Forum and joining the WEF's Global Innovators Unicorn Track for promising companies.

ActiveFence, which employs top-tier trust & safety experts to ensure the identification of online harm, is committed to facilitating conversations around defining best practices, measures and standards for protecting vulnerable groups online.
