This API is the perfect solution to check the safety reputation of an IPv4 address.
If you need to know if an IP address is involved in spam, malware and other fraudulent activities
or if it is used as a proxy, then this API can come in handy.
We use multiple IP blacklists and DNSBL services to help you identify malicious IP addresses. This is good to get the reputation of an IP address and know if an IP address should be blocked. We use public and proprietary IP blacklists, you can view the engines used and detection rate.
With this IP Reputation API you can check if an IP address is known to be a public proxy (is_proxy), a web proxy (is_webproxy), a VPN anonymizer (is_vpn), a Tor node (is_tor) or a hosting/datacenter provider (is_hosting). These additional information should help you decide if the user's IP address should be blocked.
Payment providers and merchants can benefit from this API to prevent fraudulent transactions. You can integrate this API in the checkout page so before accepting the payment from the user, you can check his IP address and if the IP reputation is not good, you can deny the transaction.
