Google Account Disabled
If you have had your Google account disabled do not panic and I mean that. Together we can sort it out. It’s import to remember Google doesn’t tend to disable accounts without reason. I do know how worrying it can be though. The google single sign in process for Analytic, Adsense, Adwords, Gmail and every other Google product you can think of can be frightening. If you need to get your Adsense account unbanned read here.
When your try to login to your account you will be redirected to a page that has general information about why you have had your Google account disabled. There will be a link to appeal / recover account option.
At this point remember to breath
Take a deep breath, it’s unlikely your account has been deleted. The only instances where they would look to delete a user’s account would be if you were not old enough to have one. This would be determined by the date of birth you entered. If that is the problem you are facing you can supply them with you identification and this problem should be easily resolved. Follow the process that is stimulated here. In essence, everything you have worked so hard to create including all your data will be intact. The reason I am sure of this is because in Google’s own words:
“…..we want to assist you in regaining access to your account.“
Now they have the right to disable your account if you find your Google account disable the chances are it’s because there has been a breach of their terms of service I would recommend that you familiarise yourself with these before you follow the next steps.
If it relates to a specific product them you can find the specific terms and condition about Google products here They do state that they terminate your account at any time for any reason, however,I think they are unlikely to do this as it’s reputationally not a good move but it does give them ultimate control over your accounts so be sensible and do not give them cause to.
Once the terms and conditional have been reviewed and you feel that there is no justifiable reason why you find your google account disabled complete the following Google support form.
When you submit this form this initiates the process of a manual review of your accounts and you are giving your consent for Google to review your content.
Top tip to help the recovery of your disabled Google account
Make sure you set a recovery email address and mobile number set up to make recovery possible if required. If you do not do this it will make your life much harder. I have had first-hand experience of this when Google though there was a suspicious sign in and it looked to the telephone number and recovery email to allow me access. At the time this was not something I had set up. Now without fail, I always have these two important bits of information. There is no excuse at this is something you are prompted to do.
