Fight registration fraud and high risk transactions.

Version 5.2 includes new features, tests, and some bug fixes listed below.

  • Tag API paging and numbering parameters for large data sets
  • Domain Age checking extended
  • Tagging common domains and email domains in the portal is not allowed anymore (gmail, icloud, hotmail, etc). You can still add via the Tag API, but too many clients were tagging gmail.com as bad by mistake and causing all traffic to score bad.

We now monitor vets and can notify you via email or API when new blacklist items hit your historic vet data.

Alerts provide monitoring of your key user data. As an example, you vet a user that scores positive on their email, and a few days later that email is added to the community as a phisher, our system can create an alert so you can quickly review the user, revet them if you wish, and take any necessary actions.
