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 that the API detects includes the following:

  • phone numbers from various countries
  • email addresses
  • social security numbers
  • IP addresses

Detecting personal details can be important for multiple reasons:

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