Contextual App Targeting for the Post-IDFA Era

Note

This is a dynamic document that is updated periodically.

Introduction

At WWDC 2020, Apple announced major changes to the IDFA on iOS 14. Fyber expects that Apple's changes to IDFA will make this persistent user identifier obsolete and no longer usable for user-level ad targeting. Fyber also expects that Google will follow suit and remove the GAID, although we expect this change to be in early 2021 or later. The time is ripe for industry innovation and we're adapting quickly to help our marketing partners adjust to the post-IDFA/GAID era.

Fyber's role as an ad monetization SDK and supply-side partner is to provide our buyers with high quality, in-app inventory. We believe the app economy is shifting towards new types of app targeting signals, ranging from much richer session-level data to more precise device attribute targeting. Fyber's goal is to establish standardized OpenRTB custom extensions that can be seamlessly adopted and used for targeting by the programmatic app industry.

OpenRTB Bid Request Parameters for Contextual App Targeting

  • These bid request parameters are structured to fit into the existing OpenRTB 2.5 and 3.0 specifications
  • Bid request parameters will be available on both iOS and Android, unless they are operating system specific, like IDFV
  • Fyber will not pass a data signal, if it is not present in the request
