If you operate or manage a website then you've probably faced abuse from fake accounts, spammers, fraudsters and the like. You may have noticed a pattern among these users though ... These types of 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.
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 be done.
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 that is queried against our API service, to give your website, app, or service a significant edge in the fight against fraud.
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.
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 12 data points about an email address including if it has been involved in recent abuse across our network.
