A quick PHP snippet to integrate into the FraudGuard.io API and associated explanation.

This PHP code performs the following steps:

  1. Sets the FraudGuard.io API credentials (username and password).
  2. Defines the IP address to query.
  3. Constructs the API endpoint URL.
  4. Initializes a cURL session using curl_init().
  5. Sets various cURL options including the API URL, authentication method, credentials, and SSL verification.
  6. Executes the cURL request and retrieves the response.
  7. Checks for any errors during the request.
  8. Decodes the JSON response and prints it.
// FraudGuard.io API credentials
$username = 'username';
$password = 'password';

// IP address to query
$ipAddress = '';

// API endpoint
$apiUrl = 'https://api.fraudguard.io/ip/' . $ipAddress;

// Initialize cURL session
$ch = curl_init();

// Set cURL options
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $apiUrl);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, true); // Enable SSL certificate verification

// Execute the cURL request
$response = curl_exec($ch);

// Check for errors
if (curl_errno($ch)) {
    echo 'Error: ' . curl_error($ch);
} else {
    // Decode JSON response
    $responseData = json_decode($response, true);

    // Print response

// Close cURL session

This code demonstrates a basic integration with the FraudGuard.io API in PHP using cURL. Make sure to replace ‘username’ and ‘password’ with your actual API credentials.
