Hide or show an app in AdMob

Hiding apps is one way you can simplify and organize your apps in AdMob.

Changing the visibility of an app only affects where the app can be seen in AdMob. App visibility does not affect ad serving, revenue, or reporting and doesn't delete your app. Hidden apps may continue to generate revenue, stats, and analytics.

Hidden apps will no longer appear in the Apps list in the sidebar or the Apps table at Apps > All apps.

Hide a visible app

Complete the following steps to hide an app:

  1. Sign in to your AdMob account at https://apps.admob.com.
  2. Click Apps in the sidebar.

  4. Click the checkbox beside the app(s) you want to hide. Previously hidden apps will be marked with the Hidden icon icon. Note: You can view all of your visible apps by selecting All visible apps from the "Show" dropdown menu.

Previous version of AdMob

Hiding apps in AdMob is one way you can simplify and organize your app list. Hidden apps no longer appear in your list of apps on the Home, Monetize, Promote, and Analyze tabs. This is reversible from the App management settings, and apps are not deleted or removed when you hide them.

To find the app visibility settings, go to Settings > App management.

Changes made to app visibility only affect where the app can be seen in AdMob. App visibility does not affect ad serving, revenue, or reporting and doesn't delete your app. Hidden apps may continue to generate revenue, stats, and analytics.
