Identify Low Quality & Disposable Email Addresses Commonly Used for Fraud or Abuse
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 risky 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. Block disposable email addresses during account registration to prevent bonus abuse or free trial fraud.
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 across the IPQS threat network. Accurate data from our email risk scoring service tracks abusive emails worldwide. 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.
Identify abusive email addresses and disposable email services commonly used by fraudsters and abusive users. Increase user quality and reduce abusive behavior.
Detect Disposable Emails
Analyze Email Reputation
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.
View advanced domain reputation to detect disposable email services and domains associated with abusive emails, phishing, or malware. Quickly scan domains for abusive behavior or even check an entire URL using our malicious URL scanner tools. High risk URLs and domains are added to our disposable email blacklists every hour.
IPQS tracks over 50 million email addresses which have recently engaged in fraudulent behavior within the past few days to months, including disposable addresses. Leverage the power of our fraud detection 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. Detect even the newest disposable email domains or abusive email services. IPQS also tracks fake email addresses and accounts that could appear perfectly valid for other email verification services as a fully functional email without using a disposable email address service, like a valid account with gmail.com.
Once we identify a disposable address or 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 Validation API which can quickly validate email addresses and detect if they are a temporary address or belong to a disposable email service. Access over 15 data points about an email address including if it has been involved in recent abuse across our network.
Integrate disposable email detection to accurately block throwaway email accounts with our collection of fraud protection plugins that make it easy to enable email validation for over 1,700+ apps.
