What’s going on?

User acquisition efforts are at risk from mobile ad fraud

Mobile app ad fraud is the enemy of ambitious user acquisition strategies. Bots and bad guys are targeting the app industry because of its big budgets, and it’s having some serious consequences. Apps are at risk of hampered user acquisition (as fraudulent clicks will never convert), decreased ad budgets which have been drained by IVT, and misattribution when clicks and conversions are attributed to the wrong source.

That’s why you need expert mobile ad fraud prevention. Check out the explainer to learn more.

Why your app needs TrafficGuard

Kick-start user acquisition efforts

Kick-start user acquisition efforts

App marketers are often targeted on their UA metrics, so you don’t want to ignore the threats facing your scaling efforts. TrafficGuard verifies every advertising engagement, giving you complete trust and confidence in the data you use to drive performance and get the results you deserve.

So much more than your MMP

Trusting MMP’s attribution data alone leaves you vulnerable, as their anti-fraud tools only operate at or after the app install attribution, not the impression or click level. Using Trafficguard as a complement, not an alternative, to your MMP ensures installs are correctly attributed and protected from the effects of invalid traffic.

Stopping the misattribution snowball

A single install attributed to the wrong source will inflate the value of that source not just by one install, but by the value of all the subsequent events of that new user. This leads marketers to underinvest in the channels that deliver the best results, restricting their advertising ROI.
