How to protect your Google AdSense account from unauthorized use

Having a Google AdSense account comes with responsibilities as well. Protecting your account from unauthorized use is a MUST if you plan on ever making any money. Anyone can add your Google AdSense code to their site that violates Google AdSense Policy and can easily have your account banned – even when YOU didn’t do anything.

Follow these steps in this order:

  1. Login to your Google Adsense account.
  2. On the left side click “Account settings”.
  3. Scroll all the way down to “Access and authorization”.
  4. Check the box “Only allow certain sites to show ads for my account” under “Sites authorized to show ads”.
  5. Enter all your sites that will be displaying Google AdSense ads (one per line); then click save once your done.

Now any sites trying to link your code which violates Google AdSense Policy will not display nor will reflect your account.
