Manage access to your Google Ads account

By sharing access to your Google Ads account, you can work with other people in your business on the same Google Ads account. Once you've granted access, you can edit a user's access level, or you can always remove access later on.

This article provides step-by-step instructions for granting, accepting, removing, and editing access to your Google Ads account.

Before you begin

To access your account, the person you invite must have a Google Account or create one.

Keep in mind

The directions below are for inviting a user to access an individual Google Ads account. For Google Ads manager accounts, get instructions for inviting a Google Ads account to link to your manager account.

Instructions

How to grant access

  1. Sign in to your Google Ads account.
  2. In the upper right corner of your account, click the tools icon , then under "Setup," click Account access
  3. Click the plus button .
  4. Select an access level for your invitee, then enter their email address. 
  5. Click Send invitation
  6. After the person accepts your email invitation, you'll receive a notification in your account. If you need to revoke your invitation, click Revoke in the "Actions" column. 

How to accept access

You’ll receive a confirmation email if someone invites you to access a Google Ads account. To accept the invitation, click the appropriate link in the email and complete the steps that follow. 

Accepting access with an alternate email address 

If someone invites you to access a Google Ads account with an email address you have listed as an alternate email address in your Google account, you’ll be able to accept and access Google Ads with either that alternate email address, or the primary email address associated with your Google account. 

Keep in mind, when signing in to Google Ads using an alternate email address, you’ll still need to use your Google account password (the password you use to sign in for your primary email address). 

Once you accept, in the Google Ads “Account access” page, you’ll be listed as a user associated with both your alternate email address and primary Google account email address.
