What is Real-time Email Validation
and Why Do We Need It?
Along with a users’ name, email addresses are probably the most commonly fields found on web forms all over the internet. Until recently, there has been no solid solution to ensure that emails addresses are entered accurately in to these forms.
For example, many will have come across the frustrating situation when you are asked when signing up for something online to ‘enter your email address’ and then again to ‘re-enter your email address’. This is just one of the old-school methods used in attempt to ensure you have entered your email correctly.
Other methods include basic checks on the format of the entered email, but still fail to verify that the email address is both correctly entered and a genuine, working email address.
For these reasons, a new solution benefits both the user and the data collector, making life easier for the user and ensuring that only accurate email data is collected.
