Fraudsters commonly use free disposable email services (temporary email addresses) to gain something of value such as account access, free trials, downloads, and other premium features, content, & services. These emails provide zero value in return since disposable email addresses are often deleted and never used again. Disposable emails are also frequently used to create duplicate accounts, engage in credit card fraud, and take advantage of free services. If your site is suffering from abusive behavior then blocking disposable emails is a crucial step to eliminate fraud.

Email address verification is not an exact science and it is quite challenging for any email validation service to maintain a high standard of quality. This is due to the popularity of SPAM filters and similar types of firewalls that outright block the email verification process for certain mail service providers. IPQS has developed proprietary methods to support these providers and many other services that block traditional email verification attempts. This feature is one of the many ways IPQS detection rates stand apart from competitor services, as many other verification providers are unable to offer the same quality & verification coverage.

Take email validation to the next level with email fraud scoring. Track abusive emails and stolen identities online with real-time blacklists that quickly detect new threats. Most disposable email address detection providers use stale blacklists that are not able to keep up with the newest disposable email services and the domains they add weekly to bypass filters. IPQS blacklists are updated in real-time to ensure that the newest disposable email services are immediately blacklisted to prevent duplicate & fake accounts, user generated SPAM, abusive users, as well as other fraudulent activity associated with temporary emails.
Lookup the email age date for any email address to determine an estimate of when the account was first created. Detecting email age can enhance email reputation and improve hit rates for fake or risky users with suspicious emails. Since fraudsters typically cycle through new domains very quickly, the API also includes the email's domain age, making it easy to detect new domains created specifically for hosting abusive email addresses. This value is listed on all email validation API responses as the "First Seen" date.
