Hi there.

I want to prevent my ads from showing on mobile devices and tablets. I only want my ads to be shown on desktops and laptops. Is there anyway to do so?

Hi Nariman.

Yes you can prevent it mobile devices. Just got to settings then you will see 4 different tabs -

Click on the devices tab. This will redirect you to -

Now select the check box and click on set mobile bid adjustment, elsse you can click on the dash at bid adjustment column. Now you can decrease the bid -90% to stop showing ads on mobile.

Hi Nariman,

 

Welcome again. Hope you are doing great. 

 

In the present set of available options with AdWords  you can use device bid modifiers to decrease the likelihood of your ads appearing on mobile devices.  You can set a modifier to be -100%. It will stop your ads on mobile devices, but not on tablets. Yes, you cannot exclude tablets.

 

Thanks
