What is a profanity filter API?

An application programming interface (API) that filters profanity is a service that uses the POST request method to return data in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) or XML format. Developers subscribe to the service offered by an API vendor and use an API access key to access the API.

How does an API for profanity filtering work?

An API for detecting profanity uses POST requests to locate words that should be removed. The API returns the results in the response body in either Extensible Markup Language (XML) or JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).

Who is a profanity API for exactly?

A profanity API is for developers who want to add profanity text removal functionality to their applications.

Businesses that monitor online communications will find an API for checking profanity helpful. Online communities, chat forums, and social media sites are examples of applications that could benefit from a profanity API.

Administrators for children’s websites will find filters that remove inappropriate words valuable too.

Why is an API for profanity checking important?
