Having trouble signing in?

Below are solutions to common problems that most often affect user access:

Confirm that you're signed in to the correct Google Account

  • If you have multiple Google Accounts, such as a personal Gmail account or another business account, it's possible you're signed in to the wrong one. Try signing out and signing in with the email address you use with Google Ad Manager.
  • If your Google account is associated with more than one Google Ad Manager account, you'll be prompted to select the account you'd like to access when you sign in. 
Use the drop-down box at the top of your account page to toggle between accounts at any time.

Clear your browser's cache and cookies

Delete your browser cache and cookies to eliminate outdated authentication data. You may need to clear your cache more than once.

Consult your network administrator

Confirm that you are listed as an active user in the Google Ad Manager network.

If your user status is marked as "Pending invitation," check your inbox and spam folders for the invitation email, then click the link within that email to activate your user profile. Your network administrator, or any user with the "Edit users, roles, and teams" permission, can resend the invitation, if needed.

Check your user permissions

If you encounter an "Unauthorized access" message while using Google Ad Manager, it's likely that a missing user role permission or incorrect Teams association has restricted your access.

Contact your network administrator to ensure you're a member of the correct user role with all necessary permissions, or that your user profile is associated with the correct Team.​
