If you operate or manage a website then you've probably faced abuse from fake accounts, abusive users, fraudsters and the like. You may have noticed a pattern among these users though ... Low quality users tend to use disposable emails and temporary email services that allow abusers to quickly cycle through new emails with unique address names across thousands of domains. These services make it possible for a simple mouse click to generate a brand new email address.
IPQualityScore's disposable email detection service can instantly identify email addresses that fit into this category so your site can block and prevent sign ups, transactions, and other actions in real-time before the damage can negatively impact your business.
In addition to detecting if the email belongs to a disposable service, you can also validate if the email inbox exists or has engaged in recent abuse for other clients on our network. These data points provide deep insight into each email address that is queried against our API service, to give your website, app, or service a significant edge in the fight against fraud.
Detect Disposable Emails

Easy Integration & API
Disposable email addresses are often used by fraudsters and frequent abusers to create fake accounts and generate fraudulent transactions. Temporary email services facilitate fraud by allowing malicious users to create a random email address at the click of a button, with full access to an inbox for actions such as confirming account verification and even communicating with customer support. Criminals can quickly dump these emails and spawn new email addresses as they please. Overall, a legitimate user should never be using a disposable email service, which makes filtering these accounts very effective in preventing fraud.
IPQS tracks over 50 million email addresses which have recently engaged in fraudulent behavior within the past few days to months. Leverage the power of our network by tapping into the data we gather from thousands of the world's most popular websites, which trust IPQS as their fraud prevention service provider. These email addresses could appear perfectly valid from other email verification services and be a fully functional email without using a disposable email address service, such as a valid account with gmail.com. Once we identify that an email has engaged in abusive activity such as credit card fraud or creating fake accounts, we will temporarily blacklist the email within our network so our clients can easily identify these users when they attempt any future abuse.
Easily detect disposable email addresses by querying our Email Verification API which can quickly validate email addresses and detect if they belong to a temporary or disposable email service. Access over 15 data points about an email address including if it has been involved in recent abuse across our network.
