About Spam APIs
Block unwanted advertising from IP addresses, text messages, emails, phone calls, and more with spam APIs.
What is a spam API?
A spam application programming interface (API) is a service that allows developers to add spam detection functionality to their applications or on their website.
Spam is unwanted advertising that is autogenerated and sent to many recipients. Spam commonly arrives in the form of an unsolicited phone call, text message, or email.
How does a spam API work?
Spam filters use machine learning (ML) technology powered by artificial intelligence (AI) to process and block unwanted content. A spam API provides the connection to and from the spam filtering service. Developers embed the API’s endpoints in their projects. The APIs use the GET and POST methods to communicate with the spam filtering service. Responses are in JSON.
Who is a spam check API for?
Developers that offer website hosting services for their clients may find adding a spam check API to be a valuable alternative to coding spam filters manually.
Spam check APIs are also for internet service providers (ISP) and other businesses that want to protect themselves and their customers from the damaging effects of spam.
Why is an API for spam important?
Every year spam generators become more sophisticated. An unsolicited email may be a phishing scam looking for passwords or financial information. It could even contain a virus. Spam is a serious security threat. A spam filtering API relies on web service, not the application. Updates are automatically integrated and not application-dependent.
Spam APIs provide functionality and flexibility compared to traditional spam security tools, which are limited in features. Endpoints make APIs easy for developers to integrate into their client applications or websites.
Large amounts of spam can overloaded servers. An API for blocking spam helps control the influx of nuisance content.
What can you expect from a spam filter API?
Developers can look forward to enhancing security in a more simplified way with less manual coding.
Businesses can expect to foster trust between themselves and their customers when they use spam filter APIs.
Are there examples of free APIs for spam filtering?
RapidAPI’s Marketplace lists several free and freemium APIs. OOPSpam by OOPSpam is a freemium spam detection API that blocks IP addresses, finds spam word patterns, and allows the developer to set up custom anti-spam rules. Its Basic plan is free.
Another popular spam detection API on the Marketplace is Spam Caller Check by Blaazetech. It’s a free API that blocks spam phone calls.

What is an API?
API stands for Application Programming Interface. APIs act like building blocks, and allow you to create applications much faster. It is more efficient and convenient to use the capabilities of one of the APIs than to try to independently implement similar functionality. See a simple API example here.
