How to Add a New User to Google Analytics

When you want to share access to your Google Analytics account, you should not share your Google username and password. The best way to go about sharing access to a new vendor — if it’s for web development, SEO, marketing, or anything else — is to add them as a new user.

It’s super easy.

Here’s how Google Support explains to website owners how to add as many new users as needed. To add a new user to an account/property/view:

1. Sign in to Google Analytics.

2. Click Admin, and navigate to the desired account/property/view.

Red arrow pointing to "Admin".

3. In the Account, Property, or View column (depending upon whether you want to add users at the account, property, or view level), click User Management.

red boxes outlining and highlighting, "Account User Management", "Property User Management", "View User Management".

4. In the Account users list, click +, then click Add new users.

Red arrow pointing to blue plus button. Red arrow and box indicating "Add Users".

5. Enter the email address for the user’s Google Account.

6. Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user.

7. Select the permissions you want. Learn more about permissions.

8. Click Add.

Add permissions page with red arrow and red box outlining email addresses. Red box outlining Read and Analyze with checked box.

And that’s it!

It’s not a bad idea to look at what users are listed from time to time and remove any users that are no longer needed. Especially for any users that have a lot of permissions.
