... and many more custom rules.
OOPSpam API uses many different measurements to determine what seems to be spam and what does not. This includes multiple outputs from Machine Learning algorithms, up-to-date blacklisted IPs lists, spam words, and many more custom rules. The user (you!) directs their content to run through OOPSpam API and will get a Spam Score. This score gives you control for how conservative or liberal you would like to mark as spam.
Because in the real world, things are not black and white (or in this case, green and red)! What might be the best solution for one client could look very different than the next. We’ll give an example. Say you are a travel website offering high end tour packages. You unfortunately get a lot of spam in your contact form, but it’s also the biggest conversion tool you have. In this case, since missing a ‘real’ message would mean missing out on large amounts of money, you would want to be more liberal on what content you accept. On the other hand, if you have a travel blog where comments are nice to get but more inconsequential, you might want to be more conservative on what comments you accept so you don’t need to spend lots of time combing through potential real comments. We decided to provide this spam score as a way to give developers and website managers more control and ability to create something more custom to ‘WOW’ their clients .
The API will return Spam Score which will be a number between 0 to 6. Besides Spam Score, It will also contain other details. It is up to you to decide your threshold based on Spam Score. Usually, a score 3 or above can be considered as spam.
We don’t have or store your data in our database, however it does run through RapidAPI. Sometimes a customer may contact us to further analyze a request- this is possible on our end by accessing the requested data through the RapidAPI Dashboard. We do not and will not process your data in any other way.
OOPSpam itself as an API is GDPR compliant. It does not store any data, so there is no data to identify or track a user. You can access OOPSpam Anti-Spam API directly without RapidAPI. (contact us via email@example.com for this)
If you choose to access our API via RapidAPI then every request through RapidAPI is stored on the RapidAPI side which users (in this scenario, you) can see on their dashboard. This data is also available to us through a similar dashboard where I can only view but cannot retrieve them. On a rare occasion when an API user reports misdetection I analyze the reported data and improve detection.
It is possible to access OOPSpam directly instead of through RapidAPI. This means no data will be stored since the only part that stores data is RapidAPI. We don't store any data. Contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for direct access.
Yes. Once you have a key, you can use it in our WordPress plugin as well as on any other integrated platforms.
