A license key is needed in order to unlock the premium version of the Antideo plugin. But you wouldn’t need one, if you are using the free version of the email validation plugin. The premium version of the plugin ensures that the disposable email list that the queries are validated against, stays updated and nothing falls within the gap
Allow Free Emails
Switching this option on, would mean that the form will accept emails from free email service providers like Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook, AOL etc This is an important aspect for companies selling B2B in-order to push the website visitor to feed in their business email address for visibility of the institution they work with. This is a key element necessary to gather lead intelligence even before your sales guy speaks with the lead or becomes a part of your campaigns
Allow Generic Emails
Activating this feature would let the form accept generic or role based emails. Examples of role based emails would be email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc. Turning this on would be helpful to be very objective and ensure the prospect enters their individual business email address rather than a group or roles based email address. Why this matters? because it might become difficult to sell, if you don’t know much about the person at the other end.

Allow Disposable Emails
Disposable emails also go by names like temp emails, temporary emails, throwaway emails etc. We recommend not to accept such emails as these emails expire after a short time. This means your subsequent emails would bounce, which is detrimental for your domain’s reputation. You can turn this feature on or off based on your preference.
Local whitelist means that you can key in email addresses into this box, one email address a line. And any email address entered here would be passed on to the form irrespective of the email falling under the criteria of the features activated within the plugin
