How to Add a User in Google Analytics

After talking enough people through the process, I thought it might be a good idea to just make a video that shows how to add a user in Google Analytics. You may need to grant access to your Analytics account if you have recently started working with an SEO agency. The steps below show you how to share Google Analytics access with someone else.



The process is straightforward, and you don’t need to compromise your privacy and security since access can be restricted or revoked at any time. Before you add a user, you will need to have created your own account with Google Analytics, verified your properties and installed the code on the pages to be tracked.


How to Add a User

Step 1: Login to your account at

Step 2: Click on the Admin tab at the top of control panel home page

Step 3: Click on the Property you would for which you would like to grant access

Step 4: Click on the Users tab in the orange navigation bar

Step 5: You should see a list of users that currently have access to your profile(s), Click on the +New User button

Step 6: Enter the new user’s email address. This must be an address that is tied to a Google account. Set the permissions for the new user- either user which has limited access to the profiles you choose or administrative which has full access to all profiles in that account.

Step 7: Check the box to notify the user by email so he/she knows that access has been granted

That’s really all there is to it. It takes less than two minutes and you don’t have to create or share any passwords. If you have any comments or questions please leave them below. If you found this video useful, please share it and spread the love.
