Hi @Deborah H,

 

When you say you are getting constant ads... let's expand on that some.

 

1) If you are seeing ads while you surf the web, this is not from your AdWords account. This is a device and web browser dependent function that you can control by adjusting settings. Do a Google search for your device name and add turn off ads (ex: Samsung Galaxy turn off ads) and do the same search for your web browser (ex: Google Chrome turn off ads = https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662850?hl=en).

 

2) If you own a business and there are ads promoting your business, this could be AdWords or it could be another advertising source. They also could be run by someone for your business you are unaware of, like a directory company, ad agency, co-worker, etc.. You would know if you had a AdWords account and it was active as they cannot just spark up on their own. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
