Add or remove a network manager with Google Wifi

With Google Wifi, you can add anyone with a Google Account as a manager of your network. Note: If you’ve added your Wi-Fi devices in the Google Home app, you will not be able to update managers in the Google Wifi app. Find out more about managing your Wi-Fi devices in the Home app.

With Google Wifi in the Google Wifi app, your Wi-Fi network only has one owner, but can have as many managers as you want. Managers can view the same data and edit the same settings as the owner, but can’t factory reset your devices or add new ones.

When you add a manager, they'll receive an email notification.

Note: Their email needs to be associated with a Google Account. If it isn’t, we’ll automatically send them instructions on how to make their email address Google compatible.
