Fraud detection

We recommend regular monitoring of fraud metrics to detect critical indicators, recognize fraudulent schemes, and find the source of bad traffic.

  1. Open Fraud Scanner.
  2. Use filters Project, App and Partner if needed. By default, the report includes data for all applications and ad partners.
  3. In the Period field, set the report period. Fraud will be shown for installs/site visits made in the selected period.

You can download a graph using the button, customize data display type and hours/days/weeks/months detailing. To analyze fraud in details, click to go to the Builder.

A brief description of Fraud Scanner reports is given below.
