Why is a candidate now showing as restricted?

At Wellfound, we're constantly iterating on our security measures to prevent malicious users from accessing other users' candidate profiles. We regularly monitor our access logs, but we also rely on your assistance to perform your own due diligence and help identify potential bad actors.

If you see a candidate in your queue that is restricted or showing as banned, it is because our trust and safety team moderated the user. Sometimes, this is temporary as we evaluate a user in our system and run through verifications or moderation checks. Other times, this means that the candidate has been banned from our platform for violating our code of conduct. You can review that here. In both cases, the action is to keep recruiters safe from anyone misrepresenting or acting poorly on the platform.
