Enabling dishonest behavior

We value honesty and fairness, so we don't allow the promotion of products or services that are designed to enable dishonest behavior.

Below are some examples of what to avoid in your ads. Learn about what happens if you violate our policies.

If you think your ad was incorrectly disapproved, you can request a review through the Disapproved ads and policy questions form.

Enabling dishonest behavior

Examples: Creation of fake or false documents such as passports or diplomas; aids to pass drug tests; paper-writing or exam-taking services; selling falsified user activity in the form of invalid clicks, reviews, or social media endorsements

Products or services that enable a user to gain unauthorized access (or make unauthorized changes) to systems, devices, or property

Examples: Hacking services, stealing cable, radar jammers, changing traffic signals, phone or wire-tapping
