Common Reasons for Why An Ad Account is Disabled

Ad Accounts are disabled by Facebook & Instagram for one of two common reasons.
The first reason is that Facebook made a mistake and incorrectly disabled your ad account. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ
Facebook is overly precautious on flagging ad accounts that may violate their advertising policies. They use a combination of algorithms and humans to determine if an ad account is violating their policy.
It is possible that your ad account has been mistakenly disabled. If you believe that is the case, you can appeal that ad disapproval process.
The second reason is that the ad doesn't follow Facebook's Advertising Policies.
Facebook's Advertising Policies apply to an ad's content, audience, and the destination it links to. Please review the ad policies, your ads, and your website to ensure that they do not violate any terms.
We've included common violations of Facebook's Advertising Policies at the bottom of this article.
