About account cancellation
There are two primary reasons your Google Ads account may be canceled:
- A user with administrative access to the account requested to cancel the account. Learn more
- Your Google Ads account has been inactive for more than 15 months - meaning your account hasn’t spent in more than 15 months, and was automatically canceled.
What you’ll see
When the account is canceled, you’ll receive an email notification. As always, you’ll be able to log in and access your canceled account. You’ll see an in-account notification letting you know your account’s been canceled.
You’ll always be able to reactivate your canceled account. Note, however, that if you reactivate a canceled account, but the account remains inactive and does not serve ads for three months after reactivation, the account will be automatically canceled again.

Keep in mind, accounts that are canceled will not be accessible via the Google Ads API (AdWords API). You’ll have to reactivate the account before attempting to view data or make changes to the account via the API.
