Does the API detect personal information?

Yes. The API has been developed to detect personal information shared in text messages, reviews or comments.

Personal details can be phone numbers from various countries, email addresses, social security numbers, IP addresses etc.

Detecting personal details can be important for multiple reasons:

  • prevent users from publicly sharing their or other people's personal information
  • detect users who use your service inappropriately: ads, scammers, sales...
  • make sure you don't store PII (personally identifiable information)
