User Safety is a core priority at Microsoft, which is why we are announcing a revision to our Bing Ads policy on the promotion of third party products and services:
Bing Ads disallows the promotion of third party online technical support services to consumers because of serious quality issues that can impact end user safety.
This policy change reflects Microsoft’s commitment to lead the industry in providing a safer experience for all of our end users, including populations most vulnerable to online scams and other fraud activities. Read more on our efforts to tackle online technical support scammers here.
We at Microsoft believe a safer online experience benefits our Advertisers and Users alike!
For more details on this global policy revision, please see our Misleading content policies page.
Have you, a family member, or a friend ever received a suspicious cold-call from someone claiming to be ‘Microsoft Tech Support’, telling you that something is wrong with your computer? Tell us about it here
