IP Address exclusion using Bing API
I need the ability to exclude IP address using API so please consider this as a feature request and help us to automate the ip exclusion process. Thanks
Thank you for your feedback. We are investigating it further and will start working on it.

This request was posted in 2015. It's 2021. What's the deal?! How many votes will it take? We will get them.
While you do make money off the back of this spam, which is likely why you are not taking action, you lose so much more money.
Most companies I talk to about Microsoft Ads have tried and stopped ads with you because the results were not good. We just cut one client by $10K a month that I am positive could be reinstated if we were able to deal with spam. I rarely even recommend Microsoft Ads anymore for our industry because it's so full of unregulated spam.
You are becoming known for spam, which is why so many advertisers use only Google, not Microsoft. It's not because you're smaller. It's because you'd rather sell junk than retain long-term advertisers.
If you're worried this could give more insight into how bad the spam really is on Microsoft Ads, don't worry. We already know.
This request is a huge step in the right direction.

Is there an estimation for this to be supported?
Need this feature yesterday to avoid on-going click bot attacks.

You can't even block IP6 ips manually in bingads, that's quite sad

I don't think Bing cares about ad revenue, or at least they don't act like they need it.

We would also request this as s matter of urgency. IP exclusions are an imperative area where we optimise and would like to integrate this feature into Click Guardian if available.
Dear Bing Ads.
It's 2019 and this is not yet implemented.
Please consider adding this asap.

Concur with the other commentators. The clients of our third-party click auditing service are limiting their Bing Ads budgets because the effective ROI is lower than with AdWords despite the lower list price per click. That is specifically because Bing Ads does not allow us to exclude IP addresses via the API during click attacks. Would strongly suggest that Bing implement this feature.
A related feature relates to excluding URLs. Bing currently allows blocking only to the third-level domain (eg, www.example.com). However, attackers using ISPs and VMs typically will have a five-level domain (eg, ec2-4-3-2-1.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com). Therefore, URL exclusions are also largely useless against attackers. This too reduces the effective ROI for our clients, so they take their dollars to AdWords.
Is there expectation set by Bing on this ? Anything already planned ?
Bing better do, because it's a huge loss of revenue for all parties.
When our clients are under attack we simply pause all campaigns and need to add IP's manually. After that the attackers come back again. And we need to repeat the process. Resulting in less ad spend for Bing.
