Allowed link domains

At a glance: Define domains and subdomains to which link redirections are allowed, in order to protect your links from unauthorized redirects and fraud.

Allowed link domains

Allowed link domains lets you create an allowlist of specific domains and subdomains. Once your allowlist is active, links you create via AppsFlyer (either with a OneLink method or single-platform attribution links) only redirect users to web URLs if the domain is in your allowlist. Otherwise, users are sent to the app store.

This protects your links from fraudulent redirects and phishing attacks. 

Principles

  • Allowed link domains is an optional feature, and inactive by default. You must add at least one domain and activate the allowlist to protect your links.
  • The allowlist is at the account level and applies to all apps in the account.
  • Only the account admin can create/edit the allowlist.
  • Only domains and subdomains are allowed; not specific paths. All paths within the specific domain/subdomain are allowed.
  • The allowlist affects all the links created via AppsFlyer, either with a OneLink method or single-platform attribution links, whether they were created before or after the allowlist was activated.
  • The allowlist supports and protects redirections for the following parameters:
    • af_r
    • af_web_dp
    • af_ios_url
    • af_android_url
  • Up to 20 domains/subdomains can be added to the allowlist.
