The Apple Search Ads certificate

Upload your Apple Search Ads certificate, which can be generated and managed in your Search Ads account in the web-based UI.

The expected format is a compressed folder (.zip) containing the .pem and .key files.

My certificate file automatically unpacks when I download it

If you're using the Safari browser – there is a setting that you can change to prevent Safari from automatically unzipping the file:

  • Open Safari.
  • From the Safari menu, select Preferences.
  • On the General tab, find the “Open Safe Files After Downloading” feature (usually at the bottom).
  • Uncheck the box to prevent .zip files from opening automatically.
