A new study from Juniper Research forecasts advertisers will lose $42 billion of ad spend globally in 2019 to fraudulent activities committed via online, mobile and in-app advertising. Despite the evolving preventing measures and initiatives, advertising fraud still stays a major issue and becomes more sophisticated each year. 

As at Affise we aim at creating a stronger and better affiliate ecosystem, eliminating fraud has become a challenge we had to address. First, we integrated with the best fraud prevention tools in the industry, so that our user can choose the technology they prefer to work with. But now we’ve gone even further and released our own preventive weapon – Click-Level Fraud Prevention Tool

What is Click-Level Fraud Prevention Tool?

A new click-level fraud prevention tool helps Affise’s users to reduce fraudulent traffic by filtering VPN, non-earmarked traffic from proxies, bot traffic etc. The system detects fraudulent traffic in real-time, block it and doesn’t allow it to reach the destination website. It goes without saying that these measures increase CR of your ad campaigns, and the advertisers get higher quality traffic to their offers.
