minFraud Release Notes

Velocity Checking on User ID

March 21, 2023

We have enabled velocity tracking on the account/user_id input for all minFraud customers.

If you send a user ID associated with your transactions, minFraud will now factor the velocity of the user's transactions into the risk score.

The account/user_id input allows you to pass a unique identifier for each of your users so that the minFraud service can group transactions by user in order to identify fraud signals attached to specific users.

Learn more about the account/user_id input on our Developer Portal.

New License Key Format

March 16, 2023

We have updated the format of our license keys. New license keys will be longer, with a six character prefix.

The new license keys can be used in all current versions of our Client APIs and in version 3.1.1 and higher of our GeoIP Update program.

No action is required for minFraud users. Existing license keys will still be valid and will continue to function normally.

New license keys will have the following changes:

  • The character set is changing from [a-zA-Z0-9] to [a-zA-Z0-9_].
  • The length of the license key will now be 40 characters.
  • License keys will have a _mmk suffix.

Please note that the length of license keys may be increased in the future.
