What is a Proxy?

A Proxy is a system that allows multiple users to go online using the same IP address.

 

Why is This Important:

Often used by fraudsters looking to mask their true physical location and present their traffic as if generated from a more lucrative geo with better payouts.

 

Why AppsFlyer:

AppsFlyer blacklists IP addresses suspected of fraud on a daily basis based on its unique scale and spread – IP Blacklists protection is automatically enabled for ALL AppsFlyer clients.
