Our lightweight solution for enriching data.
Scans open-source databases and gathers extra information about users based on an Email address, Phone number or IP address. You can also simply check if an email address is valid or not and instantly get background information to create a complete user profile, flag fraudsters, confirm suspicions or remove doubts.
SEON relies on data enrichment APIs to enhance the data you have connected to each transaction. You can learn more about how and why you should consider using such a service for your business here.
APIs / Modules
Data enrichment is handled by four APIs/modules.
- Email Module / API
The Email API generates a risk score associated with a single email address based on deep social media profiling and domain verification tools. Fake email addresses can quickly be filtered with the help of the Email API. This provides raw data output as the Email Module.
- Email Verification Module / API
Using a fast SMTP-MX check, this module tells you whether or not an email address is valid or not. Beyond the basic deliverability check, it also returns information on the email's domain, such as if it's free/disposable. In the case of custom domains, it checks whether or not there is a registered website, the creation date, and if the top-level domain is suspicious or not.
- Phone Module / API
Our Phone API combines numerous data sources to provide an in-depth phone number investigation tool. It aggregates open and reachable social, and messenger data to flag fraudsters based on a phone address only.
- IP Module / API
The IP API generates a risk score associated with a single IP address. The elements that are being analyzed depict a clear picture of whether the user is trying to mask their connection. This provides raw data output as the IP Module.
To understand how they work on the API level, please use the API references.
Digital & Social Media Lookup
Aggregate digital profiles and social media profiles linked to the email address to confirm identities and flag suspicious users. Shows if the email is registered or not on:
Email Domain Check to Detect
- Disposable, high-risk providers
- No SMS verification enabled providers
- Free email providers
- Domain creation, update, and expiration date
- Domain exists or not
- Suspicious top-level domain checks
- Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance enforced or not
- Custom domain or not
- Accept all emails or not
- MX records are valid or not
- SPF is sufficiently strict enough to prevent spoofing or not
- Domain registrar information

Digital & Social Media Lookup
Aggregate digital profiles and social media profiles linked to the phone number to confirm identities and flag suspicious users. Shows if the phone number is registered or not on:
Our Phone API aggregates numerous data sources to provide an in-depth phone number investigation tool. It searches open and reachable data including social information to flag fraudsters based on a single phone number. A score above 4 counts as suspicious by default.
Filter out invalid phone numbers by examining strings at a glance.
Country, Carrier, and Type
Detect the origin country, type, and carrier to calculate risk scores.
Detect if the phone number is virtual or cloud-registered by checking the HLR + IMSI. Retrieve the subscriber name via CNAM.
Social Media Lookup
Connect the phone number to associated social media accounts to see if it matches your user profile.
Extract valuable data such as last login and user photo when the number is linked to Messenging accounts such as Viber, WhatsApp, or Telegram.
Proxy / VPN / Tor
Detect connection methods and mitigate risks associated with certain proxies, virtual private networks, or TOR browser users.
Block blacklisted spammers from signing up or logging onto your platform by checking on more than 60 DNSBL real time.
Datacenter ISP Identifier
Unmask users trying to connect to your service via suspicious data centers and mark them for future fraud prevention.
ISP and Location
Confirm user location and risk based on their Internet Service Provider risk category.
Open Port Ping
Ping IP addresses open ports to get accurate results on proxy usage. Detect malicious bots, including brute-force attackers and hijacked netblocks.
Generate accurate, in-depth reports and scoring in less than 200ms to block suspicious users, flag fraudsters, and improve your business operations.
