The Fraud Prevention Suite detects and rejects fraudulent engagements before attribution. It includes Adjust's Anonymous IP Filter, Click Injection Filtering, and Distribution Modeling.

If you add rejected_install_callback or rejected_reattribution_callback to a link URL and the Fraud Prevention Suite detects fraud, you will see the rejection reason in the callback. See the following table for a list of the rejection reasons:

Rejection reasonDescription
anonymous_trafficAnonymous IP filtering
distribution_outlierClick spamming - distribution modeling
too_many_engagementsClick spamming - hyper engagement
engagement_injectionClick injection filtering
incorrect_signatureInvalid Signature
It is possible for one attribution to trigger an install callback and a rejected install callback.
Example: For an install matched to two clicks where one click is fraudulent and the second click is valid: The fraudulent click triggers a rejected install callback and the valid click triggers an install callback.

Other recommended placeholders

We also advise that you include the following placeholders in all callback URLs. These placeholders will ensure that you always receive basic information that you can use to identify the app, link, data point, and device to which the rest of your callback data belongs.
