Protection from “fake clicks”

Yandex.Direct is concerned with the security of ads placed on its service. Therefore, a multistage technology, which combines both automatic and manual filtration methods, is used to protect against unfair and erroneous clicks.

Clicks which are identified by Direct as invalid are not counted in Direct's statistical reports and funds are not debited from the advertiser's account for them.
