Accept the new Terms of Service to upgrade your Google Analytics for Firebase property

All properties must accept the new Terms of Service to retain access and avoid data deletion.

Any properties that have not accepted the new Terms by February 15, 2022 will no longer process new data in their Google Analytics for Firebase property, but will still have the opportunity to upgrade and resume data population until March 15, 2022. Any properties that have not accepted the new Terms by March 15, 2022 will be permanently deleted along with their data.

If the new Terms are accepted between February 15, 2022 and March 15, 2022:

  • Data will resume processing and deletion will not occur
  • There will be a gap in the data for the time period between February 15th and when the Terms were accepted

Upgrade your property

  1. Open the Firebase console.
  2. If prompted, sign in with the Google account that you use to manage Firebase and Google Cloud projects.
  3. Select your Firebase project.
  4. On the left, click Analytics > Dashboard.
    If the property requires an upgrade, you'll see the Accept the New Terms link at the top of the page. Click Accept the new Terms.
  5. Follow the instructions in the upgrade wizard to complete the upgrade.

If you own multiple projects, you'll have to complete the upgrade flow for each project.


To perform the upgrade, you need to have the Owner role in Firebase.

When you perform the upgrade, you will have the option to choose an existing Analytics account to upgrade your app property into or create a new Analytics account.

  • This choice (existing or new account) will launch via the step-by-step instructions in the upgrade wizard.
  • Important: To choose an existing account, you need Editor permissions in the existing Analytics account. Otherwise, you need to create a new account.
  • If you have an existing Google Analytics 4 property with a web data stream, and you’d like your app and web data together in the same Analytics account, you need to link your Google Analytics for Firebase project to the existing account.
