About FraudScore

FraudScore evaluates the quality and consistency of mobile traffic in advertising campaigns (CPC, CPI, CPA, etc.). Also, it helps to investigate issues with low-quality traffic, reporting an independent expert. FraudScore evaluates traffic in many dimensions by taking into consideration mobile-specific parameters: emulators, install-bot farms, device-spoofing, proxy unmasking, etc.

To start using the FraudScore plugin on the Affise platform, you are to register via this link in 3 steps:

  1. Set your personal information.

  2. Confirm the registration via an email.

  3. Add information about your company, or any other additional information.

❗Please note that the FraudScore team is checking each registration till the approval. Meanwhile, the client has no access to the account.

Once FraudScore manager approves your registration, you have two options:

  • Trial period - 1 free month (can be discussed with the FraudScore manager).

  • Purchasing one of the plans to start using the system on a paid basis.

When you've registered and chosen the plan, you can select the type of integration: Postback or API.

Postback integration

Postback integration means getting all the data from the Affise system via the postback.

To set up postback integration with FraudScore, follow the steps below:

  • Get your API key for the postback-type of integration with Affise.

  • In the Admin panel, click Marketplace > FraudScore.

  • Insert the key into the Fraudscore API key field.

FraudScore API key is used for the client identification for each sent postback.

Please note, Affise allows you to send data in two ways:

  1. Send all conversions - that means that all the conversions are sent to the FraudScore system by default.

After the plugin is enabled, you can see the first report in the FraudScore system in 30 minutes.

API integration

API type of integration is a unique service for getting all the data for further analysis. This is a more perspective solution for integration rather than a postback.

To set up API integration with FraudScore, follow the steps below:

  • Click Settings > Tracking domains to take your API URL.

  • Click Users > User management and select the General manager to take an API key. API keys of other types of users can lead to integration failure, because not all users have the necessary permissions to access certain data on the Admin panel.

❗By default, only the General Manager has access to the Users and Settings sections. If you need access to these sections, contact your General Manager to get the necessary permissions.

  • Place the API URL and API key in your FraudScore account using the instruction.

❗ By default, there is a filter to get conversions. All Affise clients get conversions only with the goal_value1. To have other conversions allowed, contact your FraudScore manager.

Smart Reject

Smart-reject is a logical extension of the API integration. This is the additional option that can be turned on by the clients' request (discussed separately with your FraudScore manager). With this option, you can set the allowed level of fraud. If the level is higher than needed, the system does the automatic rejection of the conversions via Affise API.

Use the instruction to set up Smart Reject.

Report

All the data related to the analyzed traffic is shown in the FraudScore system only.

This is located in the report section, where you can find all the data (general and detailed).

Also, each client of FraudScore has the API access to all the data so that it could be passed back to the Affise system and shown in the Statistics.

❗The FraudScore tab appears in the Statistics section once the user enables the integration.
