Auto-Redirects

Auto-redirect ads take the user out of the app without any action from the user. These bad ads automatically redirect the user to the app store, to phishing scams, or to malicious websites. By using Ad Review, you can detect auto-redirect events and tackle user complaints about them.

Auto-Redirects Report

When an auto-redirecting ad starts appearing in your apps, you will probably receive user complaints. However, these complaints rarely contain enough information to act on, and the issues they describe are impossible to recreate. With Auto-Redirects Report (MAX > Ad Review > Analyze > Auto-Redirects Report) you can find the specific creative by using a combination of filters like date, country, application, and redirect target.

End User ID

You can refine results for a specific user. To do this you must first tag users with your own identifiers.
