How to give Google Ads Access? 

 

Google Ads gives you the privilege to work with up to 25 users on a single ad account. The person you grant access to will be able to view, edit and manage your ad account. Multiple account managers can operate the ad account from different locations and take advantage of Google Ads Services.  

Although, once you’ve granted access, you will always be able to edit the users’ access level or remove them when needed. 

In this article, you will be able to learn all the possible ways to grant access to your Google Ads account at your convenience. Before we begin, it’s important to know that to access your ad account, the person you invite must have a Google Ads account or need to create one.
