BERLIN AND SAN FRANCISCO - September 19, 2017 - Today Adjust announced the expansion of its Coalition Against Ad Fraud (CAAF) with a new set of strategic partners and guidelines for entry. All CAAF members have contractually undersigned these guidelines in order to participate in the fight against fraud. New members AdAction, AdColony, AppLift, Aarki, Dynalyst, Fyber, i-mobile, InMobi, IronSource, Jampp, Liftoff, Nend, Remerge, Vungle and YouAppi join a growing list of platform leaders that have pledged to tackle mobile ad fraud head-on […].

With mobile in-app ad spend topping over $5.6 billion in the US last year, performance ad fraud is a problem that advertisers and networks can no longer afford to ignore. Adjust, the industry leader in attribution and analytics, was the first platform with a commercially available offering of tools that directly prevent performance mobile ad fraud with its Fraud Prevention Suite (FPS). Since the launch of FPS, many companies have been quick to follow, although none are currently actively preventing and denying attribution of fraudulent engagements.
