Whitepages Pro, a digital identity verification company, has introduced its Transaction Risk API. The API provides instantaneous risk scoring for transactions of all type. The risk score is based on email, IP, phone, address and name of the party attempting to complete a transaction.
Rainmaker, which provides an identity API to get more information about a person’s email address, has declared the winners of its API contest. The month long challenge invited developers to make innovative applications based on the Rainmaker API and in the process earn fame and some cool prizes. Rainmaker also announced a new developer challenge that is expected to run in August.
Passwords are passé, or so thinks Amazon. The online retail giant is launching its own single sign on service for third-party developers. Dubbed “Login with Amazon,” the API enables Amazon’s 200 million active customers to sign into websites, apps and games using their Amazon credentials.
