submitting a review after facebook ads are rejected

When your Ad is rejected you will receive an email notification from Facebook that will link to Account Quality, which will provide you with the reason for rejection. Once you have reviewed this you can then decide whether you want to edit your ad or create a brand new one to comply with Facebook’s policies or, you can request another review on the ad if you believe that it was incorrectly rejected. 


You need to be aware that Facebook may not always share details about their systems that identify violations, this is because they don’t want people to use that information in order to evade their review systems.

requesting another review of your rejected ad

If you believe that your ad was wrongly rejected by Facebook you can request another review of your ad. In order to do this follow our step-by-step guide which we have outlined below for your convenience:

  1. Go to Account Quality
  2. Click to select your account or catalogue with the rejected ads
  3. Select ads, ad sets or campaigns that you believe were wrongly rejected
  4. Click request review and select Submit

If Facebook decide to change their decision on the status of the ad, your ad will be in the same status as your campaign. You will also be able to track the request and its current status at any time in Account Quality. It is worth noting that if the ad is rejected again it will stay rejected and you will not be able to submit another review request. Unlike the initial ad review, this will be done more heavily on teams of human reviewers to make sure that the automation was correct.
