Hello,

 

Set adjustment at "decrease 100%" and it will become minus 100% thus no visits from mobiles.

Hi Anil, as Adrian has said, a Bid Adjustment of -100% will effectively turn off mobile impressions.

 

However, I would ask that you think carefully before you do this.  Research has proven that mobile devices are becoming very important in the path to conversion; many people are now using their mobile devices to research purchases before completing a sale on another device such as a desktop.  Your own screenshot shows that your CTR for mobile devices is way higher than it is for desktops or tablets and your CPC a lot lower than desktops.  

 

I would strongly suggest you take a look at the data available in the new Estimated Conversions columns to get an idea of how many conversions for your Account actually start with a mobile device.  By disabling these impressions you could do your Account a lot more harm than good.

Cobnut has made an excelent point. Besides that , I think your CTR for computers is too low at 0.32 % . It could be the case that you are runing a Search campaign with Search partners. Please go to the Segment button in the Keywords tab and select "network" to view exactly how much conversions you are getting from search partners , and if it is a non- profitable situation you can disable Partners and leave simple Search.
