How to grant another person access to your Google Ads (Adwords) Account

When you hire a pay per click firm, it is helpful to give them their own access to your Google Ads Account. This allows them to look at the account without compromising the account. It also allows you to keep tabs on their activities within your account through the History tool.

There will be times when you need to grant access to an external person to manage or make changes to your Google Ads (Adwords) account. This should be your first option instead of sharing your own login details.

Here are some common scenarios where you might find this especially helpfull:

  • You are getting an SEO or Google Adwords Professional or agency to create and/or manage your Google Ads.
  • You have multiple people in your organisation managing the account or that require access for reporting and data analysis purposes.
  • You would like to add a backup account in case you lose access to the primary one.

Here are the step by step instructions on how to achieve this:

  1. Login to your Google Ads account.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Click on Account Access.
  4. At the top left of the screen, under the Google Ads logo, click on Security.
  5. Click on Allowed domains.
  6. Click on Add Domain. The domain is the website domain or everything after “@” in the email address. For example, to give account access,  add the domain
  7. Once you type in the domain, click SAVE.
  8. At the top left of the screen, under the Google Ads logo, click on Users.
  9. Click the + button to add a new user.
  10. Enter the email address of the new user and select their account access level.
  11. Click SEND INVITATION once you have confirmed that the email address and the account access level is correct.
  12. The new user will receive an email to grant them access to your ad words campaign.
