What is ImHuman and meaning and why and hows?
Please visit the ImHuman post or ImHuman page for all the details you have been asking.
What is the properties of ImHuman API?
It is a PHP - MYSQL driven, public access, operating on HTTP GET method, language independent, JSON outputting API
Why am I required to register if it is public access then?
Well dear visitor, I really do not need your registration or email adress you have provided. As you know there are tons of useless and harmful people over the internet and unfortunately some of them will want to take down something that serves the public and requires no fees for its services.
First, API already knows who is accessing it, from where and when without you providing your identification anyways but an identification is double check so we can know who is abusing the service and who do not. So we can deny access to those harmful people, bots, programs while keeping you and your website safe and with up to date humanizers as fast as possible.
Secondly, if you have several websites you don't have to register for each one of them. You can create as many access keys as you want. And if you update, change your website or forgot your keys, you dont need a new key, you will be able to see your keys anytime you want.
Why is Website IP required in website creation? and how can find it?
We require website IP for security purposes and your own good. It is disabled for now because the API is new and people will want to try it on their local servers etc.
So when you request a new set of humanizers, we check your identification and your incoming IP address with the one you have provided. Even Identifications matches we deny the access when the IP doesn't match. This usually means someone stole your keys and trying to access with your user credentials from a different host.
If you don't know how to find your website address, please visit http://www.whoishostingthis.com/ and enter your domain, you will see the IP address information.
What is the meaning of the information under My Websites pages?
This table shows your API user & key values for each website you have created. You can access the API with those values and given API Client.
What is "Humanizer" ?
A Humanizer is a term I made up. a Humanizer consists of an image source (url) , unique name and unique value. We use these 1 x 3 array(s) to construct our grid and perform security checks on the results.
What is a Tag?
A tag is a label, identification or category for the humanizers.
