Unfortunately, fraud is everywhere and what’s more alarming is that it can destroy your business slowly without you even knowing it. It’s one of the endless issues that you should never ignore. Several tools can help you combat fraud, but it’s important to know the different kinds of fraud marketers first.
The fraudster will take the credit if the user installs the application. What’s more alarming is that there isn’t a way to raise a warning flag, because it’s not a robot, but rather a real human who is really interested in installing the application in the first place.
Context fraud on the other hand only occurs when the advertisements are displayed on the wrong platform or even in a wrong environment. Even if an advertisement is presented in an environment that receives heavy traffic but is the opposite of the target demographic of the marketer, then it’s rendered useless. Sometimes it is also regarded as the compliance fraud considering the fact that advertisements are being presented in the wrong context.
Install fraud are also known as false impersonation wherein it mimics the behaviour of a real human. This kind of fraud is used in scaling a user base that would soon drive up the costs to the poor marketer. Users are not interested in anything about the application. Most of the times its just humans who have a suspicious intent about something or bots that are producing this kind of traffic. Most humans are paid to install and uninstall an application to make it appear as if someone is using it and stay under the radar. The application’s purpose is defeated because they are not using it in the first place. They only wanted to generate real traffic to a particular application.
