Adult content in adf.ly ads

Post by tomc » Sun Jun 09, 2019 9:14 am

I was testing one of my new links and an ad for rpgmasterleague.com was shown. It is supposed to be a role playing game but the characters shown are those of undressed women characters with frontal nudity. Even if the characters are just drawn and not real photos of women, it is still nudity/adult content which is supposed to be not shown in adf.ly ads. The ad was shown after a click on the SKIP AD button.

If you add /general/rpggame_0002/x3/index.html to the domain, you will see what is actually shown on the ad. There is still a trailing tracking code but I am not going to post it here as it might be the referrer code for the advertizer. However, if the admins need that, I am willing to submit the complete URL (including the tracking code) as I have it saved.

Hi,

Please report this either to [email protected] giving the following info:


- the IP address of the device that has viewed the ad in the last 48 hours

- the adf.ly link

- the device and browser

- a screenshot if possible

or when you see the ad, there is a button 'Report this Ad' .

Neither option works. I have personally seen these adverts myself and they appear more frequently on mobile devices/phones. They also appear on 90% of Push Ads notifications. The offending sites are Nutaku.com, Randymilfs, Gumtree and many other dating/webcam sites. The ads that appear during the normal adfly link clearly state "real sex will become boring" and "18+" This is an obvious problem and using both @abuse and "report this ad" have not worked and continue to not work. I've sent 4 reports via @abuse with all of the required information in regards to the Push Ad notifications and received no response after 1 week. I've also used "report this ad" on the adfly links and they have not been removed. If adult content is allowed, you need to officially declare it because there's a lot of these ads that give the impression that they are allowed.

Hi,

No, Adult content is not allowed on AdFly.

The abuse mailbox is checked with priority, so you should have received an answer in 12-24 hours. Please check your spam folder as well.

The 'Report this Ad' feature is also checked daily by the team and if the necessary info is provided, they should be able to locate and remove the ads.

If you keep seeing them, it doesn't actually mean that thee ads were not removed, but that some users keep managing to abuse the platform. As our service is on the web, people always come up with new softwares, codes, etc that enables them to trick our system. For this reason we keep implementing new ways to filter live ads, however we also ask the users to help us by reporting them to minimize fraud on the platform.
