Prerequisite

In this article, we are going to see how we get Caller Id information using numverify API. Numverify offers a powerful tool to deliver phone number validation and information lookup in portable JSON format by Just making a request using a simple URL.

For the following program to work you must have an API key and to get one simply Click here.

Module needed:

  • bs4: Beautiful Soup(bs4) is a Python library for pulling data out of HTML and XML files. This module does not come built-in with Python. To install, type the following command in your terminal.
pip install bs4
  • requests: Request allows you to send HTTP/1.1 requests extremely easily. This module also does not come built-in with Python. To install, type the following command in your terminal.
pip install requests

Approach:

  • Import module
  • Make a function for GET request
  • Pass the URL with existing API key, mobile number, and country code
  • Now retrieve the caller id information

Program:

Python3




# import module
import requests
import pandas as pd
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
 
# link for extract html data
# Making a GET request
     
def getdata(url):
    r=requests.get(url)
    return r.text
# API key
# Enter your own API key instead of 'YOUR API KEY'
api = 'YOUR API KEY'
 
# number and country code
number = '9852638787'
country = 'IN'
 
# pass Your API, number and country code
# in getdata function
htmldata=getdata('http://apilayer.net/api/validate?access_key='+api+'&number='+number+'&country_code='+country+'&format=1')
soup = BeautifulSoup(htmldata, 'html.parser')
print(soup)
