Microsoft Advertising for Android

Signing in

Use the same email address to sign in that you use for your Microsoft Advertising account.
  1. Enter your email address and select Next.
  2. Enter your password and select Sign in.

To switch to a different account, go to the menu icon at the top left and select Accounts. Then just select the account from the list.

To sign out, go to the menu icon at the top left and select Sign out.

Having trouble signing in?

Below are some common reasons why sign in might not work:

"We don't recognize this Microsoft account." You're trying to sign into the app with an email address that hasn't been associated with a Microsoft Advertising user yet. To resolve this issue, you'll need to use a Microsoft account to sign in.

When you try to sign into the app, you see the following message: "There is no Microsoft Advertising account associated with this email address." To resolve this issue, make sure your email address has access to a Microsoft Advertising. If your company is already using Microsoft Advertising, reach out to the person who manages the account and ask them to invite you as a new user. Once they do, you’ll be able to set yourself up as a user on the account and will then be able to sign into the app successfully.


You can change your campaign budget in the Microsoft Advertising Smart Campaign mobile app by going to the Campaigns tab. Select a campaign from the list to see it in the single campaign view. Select Edit next to the campaign name and budget. Select the Daily budget. Just enter your new budget and select Save.

Create or edit an ad
