The digital advertising world is becoming a battleground as companies race to win over customers. In this heated competition, marketers are desperately seeking ways to engage users on platforms like Google Play and the App Store. But their efforts are being sabotaged by the growing threat of ad fraud. Fraudsters are infiltrating mobile campaigns with fake traffic, and if marketers don't act now, this problem will spiral out of control.
