Announcement: Vungle's Suite for Publishers is Now Liftoff Monetize

As we merge with Liftoff, we are excited to rebrand our offerings. The Vungle suite for publishers is now Liftoff Monetize. These changes will affect our UI, API, and documentation as follows:

  • UI: The Publisher Dashboard is Now the Liftoff Monetize Dashboard
    The Vungle UI for publishers, the Publisher Dashboard, is now the Liftoff Monetize Dashboard. You will notice a new look and feel, but the rebrand will not change its functionality. 
  • APIs: For Publisher APIs, Our Domains Stay the Same
    Our API domains, all containing vungle, will not change.
  • Documentation: There Will Be a Period of Disparity in Our Help Center
    Our Help Center will temporarily refer to both Liftoff and Vungle:
    • Our narrative will refer to our product suites as Liftoff Monetize, Vungle SDK, Liftoff Direct, and Vungle Exchange.
      Our publisher suite is now Liftoff Monetize; our advertiser suite is now Liftoff Direct, while our Vungle SDK and Vungle Exchange remain unchanged. 
    • Our dashboard screenshots will gradually evolve to match the Liftoff look and feel.
      But in the interim, until colors and logos are updated, the screenshots still depict the correct functionality of our dashboards.
    • Some links will gradually be updated to Liftoff URLs.
      Links from our Help Center articles to our dashboards, to our support center, to email addresses, and to other sites will transport you to Liftoff or Vungle URLs, as required.
    • Our code samples will match the backend code, which uses Vungle in the names of many methods, functions, and endpoints.

    This means that you will see Liftoff as our name on our website, in our product UI, in our communications to you, and in our marketing collateral–everywhere except in reference to the Vungle SDK and Vungle Exchange.
