Calculate Risk

Learn and practice how to calculate risk scores using Clearbit's risk API.

It is essential to calculate risk to discover any potential issues with signups beforehand. The data lookup is insufficient to check whether the incoming signups are fake or valid. Additionally, in the case of payments, we need to check whether they have a high chargeback risk or not. Therefore, Clearbit launched its risk score calculator. It checks the following:

  • If a certain email address is forged, disposable, undeliverable, or looks fake.

  • If an IP address is blacklisted or using a proxy.
