Request access to a location

If another user has verified a location, you may see the status "Access needed" in your account. Any updates you make to this location won’t be submitted to appear live on Google Maps and Search.

To manage a location that has already been verified by another user, you'll need to request access from the current verified owner.

Request access

To request management access or ownership of a location:

  1. Sign in to Google My Business.
  2. Click Access needed at the top of your screen.
  3. Click the boxes next to the locations you’d like to access, then click Request management on the right-hand side.
  4. Follow the instructions on the page that appears.
