When this feature is enabled, ClickCease will cross-block IPs between Google and Facebook (Meta) Ads.
For example, when a certain user's IP is detected as fraudulent after clicking on one of your Facebook Ads, that IP will automatically blocked from your Google Ads campaigns as well, and vise versa.

Enabling Cross Platform Blocking:
To enable this feature, go to Domain Settings > Auto IP Blocking and scroll down to Cross Platform Blocking:
Clicks Report View:
The details of each IP and on what platform's ads it was blocked from will appear on the Clicks Report, under the Blocked On column.
The Clicks Report can be exported to .CSV file for further analysis. It will also indicate on which platform the IP block was applied.
Main Dashboard View:
On the main Dashboard, under Cross Platform Blocking, you will also see the total number of IPs blocked, during the chosen time period, in both Google and Facebook due to cross-platform blocking being enabled.
Please note that this feature does not support or use Microsoft (Bing) Ads data.
When filtering for Google/Facebook Ads, you will see the cross-platform blocks on the other platform.
- In order to enable this feature both Google and Facebook Ads protection must be enabled.
- This feature is available only for Pro and Advanced plan users.
- This feature is disabled by default.
- This feature cannot be enabled in parallel with the Cross Domain Blocking Feature.
- Aggressive Blocking and IP Range Exclusion features are supported, but in Facebook it will be the single IP that will be blocked (due to Facebook limitation).
- When Advanced Mode is enabled, Facebook IPs will not be blocked on your Google Ads campaigns. Google's blocked IP will be applied for Facebook. This is in order to maintain one of the main values of the Advanced Mode feature provides, which is blocking fraud activity on the campaign level, meaning not blocking in a fast manner across the entire account (mainly for high traffic volume accounts).
