DEVCON Bad Ad Blocking Plugin
Bad actors exploit the digital ad ecosystem by looking legitimate to DSPs and CDNs – hiding their true colors until they’re all the way in the browser. DEVCON creates a browser firewall to establish a last line of defense, blocking malvertising after it’s revealed itself but before it can get to your site’s audience.
But in order to create that browser firewall, we have to load in the browser! Your WordPress site can add blocking across your entire site with this DEVCON plugin that injects into the head of your site. Our proprietary technology and blocking service allows us to keep an eye on any unit in the page loading third-party demand. Our script loads asynchronously and comes from the fastest geolocated CDNs to ensure low network latency.
We offer alert only service that helps you gauge the risk on your site (how much is getting through) without blocking at no cost to you.
The first thing you need to get started is a data key. Register here and then follow the installation instructions on WordPress to get set up.
Or you can enable blocking through one of our paid services. Based on your impression volume, you could secure your site from bad as for as little as $25 a week.
Make sure you are using WordPress 4.7 or later and that your server is running PHP 5.2.4 or later (same requirement as WordPress itself)
Install and activate the plugin as usual from the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
Go to the Devcon settings page from WordPress sidebar.
Add your Devcon Data Key and save. That’s it…
