How can affiliate network protect contacts of direct adverts

Xoxo everyone, Reznik is here again! I already told you how you can find the contact of almost any direct advertiser in the cryptocurrency vertical. The fact is that advertisers use an autologin link to authorize users. Through this link, with the right approach, anyone can get quite a lot of interesting information.

Affiliate networks try to protect the contacts of their advertisers, otherwise some of the affiliates will stop sending traffic through the affiliate program, which means that the company will lose a share of the profit. In addition, competitors, having received the contacts of the advertiser, can connect it to themselves, which is also an extremely unpleasant factor.

Can such sensitive information be protected?

So how can we do it?

Alas, there is no ideal universal and reliable method. You have to pervert. There are 3 main methods and each has its drawbacks. Which one to use to protect the contacts of a particular advertisement must be decided according to the situation.

Method 1: Disable the autologin link

Yes, you can simply turn it off and then the very attempt to use the direct advertiser contact search method will die in the bud.

The mechanics of communication between the advertiser and the user will change. When calling, the call center personnel will have to send the new link to the user by mail each time. The conversion will decrease, but not significantly.

Another drawback is that many advertisers are very insistent that the autologin link be included. Some will be able to negotiate, and some will not.

Inside AlterCPA Pro and AlterCPA Cloud turning off the autologin link will look like this:

We go into the integration settings of the company we need, go down closer to the bottom and set the “Disabled” mode in the “Synchronous sending of leads for registration” block.

Method 2. White Label

This is a method, the implementation of which must be negotiated with the advertiser. For his part, he transfers the entire technical component of the funnel to a domain that belongs to the affiliate network.

Then the only contact that can be obtained is yours – set by the partner and listed in your domain’s WHOIS. This can be used and pretend to be a direct advertiser. But it would be more honest just not to indicate contacts.

The disadvantage is that not all advertisers will agree to waste the time of employees due to the whim of the affiliate network. But there may be other reasons for refusal. In particular, technical – white label most often requires configuration on the side of payment gateways, which greatly complicates the implementation.

Method 3. Grab it all yourself

We are talking about using the previous method, but with the independent execution of all actions to transfer the technical structure to your domain.

About one of these options – parking a domain to a smartlink – I already told you. You can use AlterCPA White in the classic setting. You can implement everything directly through a properly configured nginx. You can try to ask for access to Private Flare. How to technically implement this whole process, I will tell in a separate article.

The disadvantage is that if the payment advertising is not integrated, but redirects the user to a third-party checkout, the link will not work. This method is ideal for advertisers with an integrated payment method.


The vast majority of affiliate networks do not protect the contacts of their direct advertisers, which is what webmasters and competing affiliates use. For those who would like to keep private information private, there are as many as three ways. In the vast majority of cases, one of them will work with any advert.
