Wesbos Burner Email Providers API (v1)

Scroll down for code samples, example requests and responses. Select a language for code samples from the tabs above or the mobile navigation menu.

This project is a free API wrapper for the burner email providers list created by wesbos.

Get Involved - Report New Disposable Email Address Domains

This API is only as good as the data provided by The Community. Please get involved in the project by keeping a look out for any new Disposable Domains

If you find a burner email address provider (AKA DEAs) not included on the list, please submit pull requests here.

Possible Use Cases

Caveats and Limitations

This service is hosted by Email Hippo and is offered as a free service to The Community. As a free service, there are no Service Level Agreements or other guarantees or warranties provided.

Speed and Throttling

To ensure fair usage and a good performance experience for everyone, there are controls in place to restrict the speed at which you can use this service. The maximum speed permitted is 10 queries per second - after that the service will return HTTP code 429 (slow down) for a duration of 1 minute.

Coverage and Accuracy

The data returned is derived from the wesbos Github repo and while there are a lot of domains on the list, this is only a small subset of the Disposable Email Address domains known to Email Hippo in it's Email Verification API. That being said, the wesbos list is fairly good and certainly better than having nothing in place to protect your sign up against from abuse from DEAs.


Officially, this is an unsupported service that is offered on a best efforts basis and can be withdrawn at any time. However, if you have any issues or suggestions, please feel free to raise these on the Github repo and we'll look into it as soon as we are able.
