Pause or resume a Smart campaign

You can pause your campaign at any time. While paused, your campaign won't accrue charges, but you may still receive a bill for charges accrued while your campaign was running. You may resume your campaign at any time.

Before you begin

Be sure to familiarize yourself with Smart campaigns.


  1. Open the Google Ads app for iOS.
  2. Tap the menu at the top, and then tap Campaigns.
  3. Find the campaign that you’d like to pause, and then tap View campaign.
  4. Beneath the name of your campaign, tap on the status of your campaign. Then click Pause campaign.
    Note: You can tap this button again to resume your campaign.
  5. Tap Pause campaign to confirm.
