What's New in RTB & OpenRTB

As previously announced in November, we are removing contextual categories in bid requests. Consequently, values for the following fields will be redacted.

  • detected_vertical (Google protocol) / User.data (OpenRTB)
  • detected_content_label (Google protocol) / Content.contentrating (OpenRTB)
  • app_category_ids (Google protocol) / App.cat (OpenRTB)
