ClickGUARD provides users with access to relational analytics with click forensic insight on every paid click, with detailed and actionable data on both paid and organic traffic. The click log comes with comprehensive visual forensic guides which help to spot suspicious click patterns and behaviors for all clicks, IPs, and devices, including an overview of targeted site URLs such as specific landing pages. ClickGUARD’s automated click fraud protection rules help with monitoring proactive device tracking and blocking, click frequencies, advanced exclusions, time-on-site, cross-campaign blocking, and more.

Additional features include custom offender warnings, Slack notifications, IP whitelist, team member accounts, entity tagging / aliases, and built-in landing page monitoring.

    Stop all your bad click issues.

    If there is one thing I'm sure of about this app is that it stops the bad clicks completely. All difficulties aside, the app really does what it's supposed to do which is to stop identify anonymous clicks and click bots and stop them from registering. I wish I had known about this software in the initial PPC ads setup. I don't really understand all the features and worse the setup process at first but I'm glad I stuck to it because it is very efficient. This is a solid and reliable product to have when running there type of ad campaigns.

    Pros

    This ap does a great job at click fraud protecting. It's designed to filter out the bad click and only give you clicks that come from actual people. It saves you money that would otherwise be wasted on click robots and click farms.

    Cons

    The only disadvantage is that setting up the app can be a bit of a pain but nothing to worry about once it's completed.

    Pros

    Fracking thousands of clicks, and it scored very accurate for catching invalid clicks so we are pleased with its accuracy.

    Cons

    There isn't much I dislike as the onboarding team was helpful with all our needs in a reasonable manner.
