GiveLab validates entries on a number of platforms using the API endpoints available. This helps ensure steps have been completed legitimately, and increases engagement from entrants to the social profiles.

Entry Methods that currently include full validation:

  • Twitter
  • Twitch
  • Tumblr
  • Mixer
  • Discord

Due to API limitations, we are unable to validate entries across all platforms, though we are continuously working to add validation to platforms that provide support. For example, Instagram does not support validation through their API, and is against their ToS. For steps we cannot validate through an API, we instead use other techniques to detect valid and invalid entries to the best of our ability.
