Check if IP is using VPN

Is it possible to check if an IP is using a known VPN provider with the API?

I searched through the docs but didn’t find anything.

Thank you!

Hey there @jsuqjgz!

You’re correct we have no docs regarding that. I highly encourage you to place a feature request via our product feedback form: https://auth0.com/feedback

Thanks!

Yes, there are several popular anonymous VPNs in our lists:

https://apility.io/list/EXPRESSVPN-EXIT-IP/type/badip
https://apility.io/list/IPVANISHVPN-EXIT-IP/type/badip
https://apility.io/list/NORDVPN-EXIT-IP/type/badip
https://apility.io/list/PIAVPN-EXIT-IP/type/badip
https://apility.io/list/PROTONVPN-EXIT-IP/type/badip

Keep in mind that using any of these VPNs simply means the user wants more privacy being (theoretically) anonymous. Maybe combining these blacklists with other blacklists of reported abusers, you can increase the detection ratio.
