How To Give Admin Access To Facebook Business Manager (2024)?

Facebook Business Manager Access


Facebook Business (now Meta Business) gives you the privilege to add different types of users to your Business Manager based on your business needs. However, you can always remove or edit users’ access levels whenever needed. 

People can be given access to take advantage of Facebook Ads Management Service based on the assets’ permissions to manage or view or can have full control over the ad account.

# There are three types of users in Facebook Business Manager: 

  • People: People are individuals that you add to your Facebook Business Manager by email & provide Facebook Business Manager access.  
  • Partners: Partners are other businesses, such as agencies or clients. 
  • System users: System users represent servers or software that make API calls to assets owned or managed by a Business Manager.
