API Keys

Overview

RemoveBounce authenticates your API requests using your account’s API keys. If you do not include your key when making an API request, or use one that is incorrect or outdated, the API will return an error.

Your API key can be used to make any API call on behalf of your account, such as getting the balance or verifying emails. Treat your API key as you would any other password. Grant access only to those who need it. Ensure it is kept out of any version control system you may be using. Control access to your key using a password manager or secrets management service.

By default, your RemoveBounce account will not have any API keys generated. You can create one or more API keys. You can also delete them, but you will never be able to edit them.

Requirements

You need an active RemoveBounce account. If you don't have an account with us yet, please go to our registration page and sign up easily using a social media account or by filling in the form.
