Why Is My Google Account Suspended? DoNotPay Will Help You Find Out!
It can be frustrating to suddenly realize that your account has been suspended without knowing the reason behind it. Google generally warns its users of suspension unless it’s something serious. In such cases, the account can be closed without prior notice.
Why is my Google account suspended? Many of Google’s account-related decisions are made by automated systems, which may be the answer to your question. If you feel like you didn’t deserve a suspension, you can file a complaint yourself or let DoNotPay do it in your stead in just a few minutes!
According to Google’s Terms of Service, the company has the right to suspend your access to your Google account in the following situations:
- The company must do so to comply with a court order or a legal requirement
- The company reasonably believes that your actions cause harm to another user, third party, or the company itself
- You repeatedly breach the company’s terms or policies
If your Google account has been suspended, you won’t be able to sign in. Every time you attempt to, you will get an error message or land on the Help Center page.
If you believe your Google account shouldn’t have been suspended, you can file an appeal requesting access to your account.
Check out the table below to learn which actions can get your account suspended and how to avoid them:
|Reasons for a Suspension or Ban||Explanation|
|Spamming||Don't use Google services to send unwanted content|

If you have trouble completing these steps, you can fill out a Request to restore your Google Account form. After you submit the form, Google will email you within two business days to let you know whether or not your account has been restored.
