      Disabling Viewability Measurement

      There are a few options for opting out of viewability measurement:

      Opting Out in a Manual Integration

      Before dragging the MoPubSDK folder into your Xcode project, simply delete the “Moat” folder to opt out of Moat or the “Avid” folder to opt out of IAS in MoPubSDK/Viewability/. If you would like to opt out of both, delete both folders.

      Opting Out in a CocoaPods Integration

      Including pod 'mopub-ios-sdk' in your Podfile will include both IAS and Moat SDKs, as well as the MoPub SDK. In order to opt out:

  • pod 'mopub-ios-sdk/Avid' will include the IAS SDK, but not the Moat SDK, as well as the MoPub SDK.
  • pod 'mopub-ios-sdk/Moat' will include the Moat SDK, but not the IAS SDK, as well as the MoPub SDK.
  • pod 'mopub-ios-sdk/Core' will only include the MoPub SDK, with viewability measurement totally disabled.

Make sure to run pod update once your Podfile is set up to your preferences.

Software Disable

If you would like to opt out of viewability measurement but do not want to modify the MoPub SDK, a function is provided for your convenience. As soon as possible after calling [[MoPub sharedInstance] start], call [[MoPub sharedInstance] disableViewability:(vendors)]. In place of “(vendors)”, MPViewabilityOptionIAS will disable IAS but leave Moat enabled, MPViewabilityOptionMoat will disable Moat but leave IAS enabled, and MPViewabilityOptionAll will disable all viewability measurement.


MoPub v4.16 SDK integrates technology from our partners Integral Ad Science, Inc. (“IAS”) and Moat, Inc. (“Moat”) in order to support viewability measurement and other proprietary reporting that IAS and Moat provide to their advertiser and publisher clients. You have the option to remove or disable this technology by following the opt-out instructions above.

If you do not remove or disable IAS’s and/or Moat’s technology in accordance with these instructions, you agree that IAS’s privacy policy and license and Moat’s privacy policy, terms, and license, respectively, apply to your integration of these partners’ technologies into your application.

If your project uses Manual Reference Counting, you must add the -fobjc-arc compiler flag to all MoPub SDK files.
