Google is looking into an issue in Merchant Center where some advertisers may see a “Circumventing systems” message in their ads.
What’s going on. The glitch was first noticed and posted to Twitter by @ruthiebos.
Hi @adsliaison , I wonder could you advise if there is a glitch at the moment with Google ads regarding “Circumventing systems”? We’ve had a number of ads disapproved for this reason randomly without making any changes to the account or campaigns in recent day? TIA 😊#googleads

Thanks for your patience as I looked into this. Our teams are aware and are investigating.

Why we care. If you see an error message in your Google Ad or Merchant Center account, be advised that there may be a glitch. You may want to follow Marvin on Twitter to be notified when/if there is a fix.
