New Features, Updates, and Revisions
We're excited to share with you some of the projects we've been working on. With new address extraction capabilities, helpful updates, and revised terms of service, SmartyStreets is smarter, more useful, and more effective.
NEW! Address Extraction - Finding and validating addresses from webpages, emails, invoices, tweets, or anything else is time consuming. Let LiveAddress do it for you—fast.  We're pleased to unveil a new feature that extracts addresses from a block of text using your existing LiveAddress API subscription. 
Now you can submit any string containing addresses and LiveAddress will identify and verify them automatically. Learn more >>
Updates: On Our Blogs - Many of you have asked how you can stay up-to-date on all the latest SmartyStreets news. We have two blogs to inform you of everything we have going on. Address Verification is the place to find all things address-related, including user experience, problem addresses, questions and answers, address theory, and more. Our SmartyStreets DevBits blog is where our computer geeks hang out. Here you can find answers about coding, technical questions, and nitty-gritty details about LiveAddress services.
Revised: Policy Changes - Your security is our priority. From time to time, we may log address info provided to our LiveAddress API (in such a way that it cannot be tied back to the accountholder who submitted the request) for the sole purpose of improving our address matching algorithms. We are amending our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy to reflect this. As we revise our address matching logic, we always want to be sure that it does not adversely affect any output results. By anonymously logging real addresses, we gain the ability to test our algorithm improvements against a large number of records to be absolutely sure that any changes have the desired effects. Of course, you're welcome to opt out of any such logging. Please see our documentation for more information. 
Thanks for being awesome!
