How to fix the "This app is blocked" Error (temporary workaround)

Posted 1 month ago

Seeing this error?

Us too.

It has nothing to do with our scripts and appears to be a Google Ads bug.

Here's a work around

1) Add a new Google Ads user

2) Authorize the script with the new user

3) Click "Advanced"

4) Click "Go to Test (unsafe)"

You can ignore the "unsafe" bit (note I'm not saying all scripts you find online are safe).

Thanks to one of our members for figuring this one out!

I appreciate it isn't ideal, but it's just whilst Google fix the issue.

I'll update this post once it's fixed.

Thanks,
