Block reason reporting in Ad Controls

After you've blocked one or more creatives in the Ad Review page of Ad Controls to prevent them from showing up in your app, consider sharing the reason why you blocked them. Submitting block reasons is optional and choosing not to share why you've blocked a creative doesn't prevent you from blocking one. However, sharing your block reasons will help Unity uphold a higher quality of ads on the Unity Ads network, and it improves your overall experience using Ad Controls and Unity’s services.

To learn more, refer to Block reason reporting

Improved programmatic blocking support in Ad Controls

Publishers are now able to review and block ads provided by our programmatic demand partners in the Ad Review section in Ad Controls. Search for ads from our programmatic demand partners by using the search functionality and filtering by the ad formats supported: banner, display, and video. The increase of more ads available for your review and new filter additions will better support your efforts to identify and manage unwanted ad content in your app.

To learn more about how to search and use filters in Ad Review, refer to Searching creatives.
