Company Details

Update

Skyhook Wireless is a mobile location services company based in Boston, MA that specializes in location positioning, context and intelligence. Founded in 2003, Skyhook originally began by geolocating Wi-Fi access points and evolved with the idea that hybrid positioning technology, which incorporates Wi-Fi, GPS, cell towers, IP address and device sensors, could improve location services. Skyhook expanded their product set in 2015 to deliver Behavioral Data through their open platform, emphasizing data privatization and security for their adtech and app clients. In 2016, Skyhook engineered Precision Location to power Wearables and IoT, and launched products Personas and Context Accelerator to help brands reach out to mobile consumers.
