    Admob Geo Stats: Unknown location

    Is there anyone known what means by "Unknown" in admob Geo Stats?
    Yesterday I found that the CTR from the unknown location is sharply increased to more than 10%(Normally around 1%), is it abnormal? Any action I need to take?

    I experienced the very same thing yesterday. Huge increase in clicks (CTR) from Unknown location.
    No idea why or how, usually have very few requests and clicks from Unknown.

    I'm watching same strange Unknown location clicks since 28th of June. Anybody had previous experience with that ?
    I'm wondering if this might be some fraud clicks from app rivals to get my admob account banned.
    Or if this has to do with the change in Admob reports which occured on the very same day of 28th of June - they addes CPM column (cost per impression).

    It become worst in yesterday. It seems like our account is attacked by someone, maybe admob's competitor.
    Anyone experienced with this before? Should we report to admob?

    I think this affect by new Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). You can see more here: https://developers.google.com/mobile...#coppa-setting

    It was also my thought that it could be related to COPPA. That Admob started to mask/remove any personal identifiable info, including location, when ad request is being made from an app used by a child. Just my thought…
