You'll need to authenticate your requests to access any of the endpoints in the emailvalidation.io API. In this guide, we'll look at how authentication works. emailvalidation.io offers two ways to authenticate your API requests: API key as
GET parameter, or via request header.
You can pass your API key along with every request by adding it as a query parameter
Example request with authentication via get request
Please don't commit your emailvalidation.io password to GitHub!
The recommended way to authenticate with the emailvalidation.io API through a HTTP request header:
Example request with authentication via header
curl "https://api.emailvalidation.io/v1/status" \
-H "apikey: YOUR-API-KEY"
Always keep your token safe and reset it if you suspect it has been compromised.
If you use one of our official SDKs, you won't have to worry about any of the above — fetch your access token from the emailvalidation.io dashboard and the client library will take care of the rest. All the client libraries use header authentication behind the scenes.
