Velocity Checks

The minFraud services check the velocity of changing transaction data linked to IP addresses and devices. For example, if many different email addresses are sighted on a single IP address, the service may identify this as a high risk activity. The minFraud services perform velocity checks on billing addresses, email addresses, and credit card information linked to IP addresses and devices. minFraud Insights and Factors customers can view which transactions have been flagged due to velocity checks with the IP risk reasons output. Learn more about IP risk reasons.

Velocity checks are only available when you are passing an IP address as an input to the minFraud service. Learn more about passing inputs to minFraud.

Disable Velocity Checks

Velocity checks can be disabled by request. You may wish to disable velocity checks if you are testing the minFraud service, and are not using actual live transactions or are submitting many requests with the same IP address. You may also wish to disable velocity checks if you do not consider this kind of behavior risky for your business.

If you would like to disable velocity checks, please reach out to our support team and we'd be happy to help you.
