How do I block IPs from certain countries?

Our platform allows you to easily block any IPs that come from areas you don't want to target.

In your Google Ads account, you can also select which countries you wish to target, however, it is very common that Google will still run your ads outside of that area. It's unclear why this occurs (this is a common issue) but our geo-blocking feature can ensure your ads don't run where you don't want them to.

Our feature gives you two options:

  • "Block" - By selecting "Block" all ad clicks with IPs from those countries will be blocked.

  • "Allow" - By selecting "Allow" all ad clicks with IPs from outside those countries will be blocked.

Once you select your countries, we will retroactively apply those settings to all the related IPs in your account. They will they will be listed as "Auto-Blocked" and immediately sent to your IP exclusion list in your Google Ads account.

Note: we need to see the first click from the user to know where they came from and then we block them from seeing your ads in the future.

Steps to block or allow IPs from specific countries:

1. Go to the "Customizations" area of your Fraud Blocker dashboard

2. Open the section for "Geo-Blocking By Country"

3. Select "Allow" or "Block," select your countr(ies) from the drop down menu and then hit "Save & Close"
