Your business does not take off as you hoped. You are not getting any new followers each day, nor are customers ordering anything from you. You think about why that might be and consider the fact that it may be because your user names are boring. Maybe you should start a new Instagram account with something new and exciting to test it out. So you start brainstorming new ideas, playing around with different combos of letters and numbers, but nothing really sticks with you.
Suddenly, more users start following you on Instagram and more orders start coming in. You can’t believe it, it seems like all your hard work is paying off! Not a week later though, your little dream business comes crashing down around you.
You may think that this does not matter that much because if people are buying fake goods then what is the difference between this activity and having your account overrun by bots? The answer is simple; your account is being used to promote illegal activity online, and not just by any old spam bot, but by sophisticated Python malware bots that can download malicious software onto your devices.
Not only are these bots likely to steal personal data from your devices but they can also begin spreading the infection to other accounts, whether they belong to friends or strangers alike, which means that soon enough everyone will have their channels flooded with pornographic material without even realizing it because these bots are good at hiding their tracks and avoiding detection by anti-virus programs.
An API Can Save The Day
The quickest way to prevent this from happening is to use an API (an application programming interface). APIs are what allow apps to communicate with other apps or websites; they work as bridges between different systems and platforms so that users can get quick access to whatever they need.
Detect any offensive or sexual username on your platform faster than ever with this API.
To make use of it, you must first:
1- Go to Username Moderation API and simply click on the button “Subscribe for free” to start using the API.
2- After signing up in Zyla API Hub, you’ll be given your personal API key. Using this one-of-a-kind combination of numbers and letters, you’ll be able to use, connect, and manage APIs!
3- Employ the different API endpoints depending on what you are looking for.
4- Once you meet your needed endpoint, make the API call by pressing the button “run” and see the results on your screen.
