What is Maltego Search?

Developed by Maltego, Maltego Search is a browser-based investigation tool that allows users to conduct automated OSINT investigations with one click. OSINT Profiler automatically searches across social media, the deep and dark web, identity and company databases, and other integrated data sources for data relevant to the input information.

What information can I use to start an Maltego Search investigation?

You can use a number of input information to start an Maltego Search investigation: Name, alias, email addresses, phone numbers, and more.

Does the Maltego Search store data?

All search results are stored in your browser. This implies that if you switch devices or browsers, you will not see any previous search results. Future versions of Maltego Search will allow users to synchronize results across different devices and browsers using end-to-end encryption.

Where are my results stored?

All search results are stored in your browser. Maltego neither keeps a record of what you were searching, nor of what you found. This implies that if you switch devices or browsers, you will not see any previous searches. Future versions will allow you to synchronize results across devices and browsers using end-to-end encryption.

How do I know if the results are legitimate?

Each Maltego Search result comes with a clear data lineage, which describes how the original search input leads to the particular result, including the types of data queried and the data sources. If the same data connection is made via multiple data sources, multiple data lineages will be presented to indicate relevance.

What features do you have planned in the future?

PDF Reports: Download your investigation results as a PDF for reporting and sharing.
Different Investigation Scenarios: OSINT Profiler is currently designed for criminal investigations. We want to add capabilities for adjacent scenarios such as blockchain investigations and deeper social media investigations.
Cold Case Monitoring: Don’t find anything on a suspect today? Keep an eye out for future opportunities. Automatically re-run searches periodically and get notified when new search results become available.
