Activision has implemented new ways to combat cheating and ban players, but sometimes innocent players get caught in the crossfire and are forced to appeal for themselves.

When you appeal a ban with Activision, you need to have sufficient evidence that the ban was a mistake or due to unauthorized use of your account.

Without either of those two, Activision will not lift the ban, and the player will lose complete access to that account.

Thankfully, submitting a ban appeal is a relatively straightforward process, and we’re here to help you find the best route to recovering your Activision account.

Where to Appeal a Ban From Activision

To successfully appeal a ban from Activision, players will need to head to the official “Appeal a Ban” web page and sign in using their login details. After confirming their account, players can fill out the form to submit an appeal.

  1. Head to the Activision Appeal a Ban webpage here.
  2. Log in with the banned Activision account.
  3. Enter your Email address and the Activision ID of your banned account.
  4. Write down a throughout explanation of why you wish to appeal your ban.
  5. Activision states that the “security team carefully monitors to ensure fair play.”
Submit Ban Appeal Activision

Players can only send one appeal per account. If they try sending other appeals through different channels, Activision will ignore them.

There are times when Activision will review an appeal and still consider it a violation of its Security and Enforcement Policy.

When this happens, the only way to reverse the decision is to prove that the infraction committed on your account was due to unauthorized activity.

But that usually involves a hacked account, so it may not resolve the issue if you were wrongfully banned.

Can I Appeal a Ban From Activision?

Activision players that face an account ban can appeal this decision but will need to supply sufficient evidence to reverse this decision.

Players can also appeal different penalties that aren’t just strictly permanent bans, including:

  • Minor Offense
  • An Account Under Review
  • Temporary Suspensions
  • Extreme Offense

How Long Does a Ban From Activision Last?

If you receive a Temporary Ban from Activision, your account could remain locked for 48 hours to two weeks. But any player that receives a Permanent Ban will remain suspended indefinitely and lose complete access to their account.

The amount of time your account is suspended depends on the severity of the infraction committed.

Why Was My Account Banned?

There are a few reasons why Activision may decide to penalize players, including:

  • Spoofing
  • Circumventing Security
  • Cheating/Modding/Hacking
  • Pirated Content
  • Unsupported Peripheral Devices and Applications
  • Boosting
  • Glitching
  • Griefing Other Players
  • Offensive Behavior
  • Malicious Reporting

Any of these reasons could potentially lead players to have their accounts penalized or even permanently banned.
