Identibyte, at it’s core, is an API that checks if an email address domain is disposable or free. Our team has built several web apps, and we always have to deal with the annoyance of pruning our lists and ensuring our outgoing “alert” style emails aren’t sending to disposable addresses.
We built Identibyte to solve that problem.
Identibyte is not designed specifically to block disposable email addresses. In fact, we find them useful ourselves and believe they serve an important purpose. Identibyte is designed to be a simple email domain classification tool that helps developers:
Purge disposable domains from mailing lists
Require non disposable mail addresses on critical forms like billing forms or notification hooks.
Sanity check and protect forms that are “giveaways” or
Prune metrics from accounting for dead accounts and email addresses.
