Address Risk API
Verification and evaluation of the risk for any address in the world, in fractions of a second.
For trust and safety teams, Address Risk API is designed to provide rich metadata and risk signals around any given address and help you predict whether your customer is engaging in fraudulent activity.
How it Works
Provide an address for any customer interaction and receive critical metadata and signals to help identify whether the address is high or low risk.
Five signals derived from the Ekata Identity Network that provide insight into how a provided address is being used online (e.g. how often it is used, the number of businesses it has been used at, how often it has been used with other identity elements, and the first and last time the address was used.)
Latitude and longitude data points for calculating distances from other reference points.
Consistently formatted addresses for your models and rules-based systems.
Unique identifier (UUID) that can be used to perform velocity calculations.
