Maybe you’re getting some help with managing your account, or perhaps you want to fully understand the performance of your campaigns. Either way, you need to know how to accept access into your Google Ads account.

To request access, a third-party will need your customer identification number (CID), also known as your Google Ads ID. If you’re struggling to find this, take a look at our simple guide here.

Accepting access in Google Ads

Thankfully, Google has made it easy for you to accept third-party access to your Google Ads account.

From the main overview page, look at the top right corner of the screen and click on ‘tools & settings’ (1). From there, click the ‘setup’ (2) dropdown menu, and then click ‘access and security’ (3).

This will take you to the ‘users’ page, which will show you any pending invitations (1), and allow you to either accept or decline them (2).

You’ll also be given a list of all users with access to your account.
