How to Accept a Linking Request in Google Ads

When someone with a My Client Center (MCC) account requests manager-level access to a Google Ads account, they make a linking request. Here’s how you can accept such a request:


A linking request allows someone with an MCC account to manage your Google Ads account on your behalf. It’s crucial to verify the identity and authenticity of the request to maintain security and control over your account.


Method 1: Through Google's Automated Email System

When a linking request is made, the account owner will receive an automated email from Google. This email will contain the details of the MCC account requesting access. Here’s what you need to do:

Steps to accept via email:

  1. Verify the MCC name to ensure it's from a source you recognize.
  2. Click “Accept Request” in the email. A new page will open, confirming that access has been granted.

Note: Always ensure the email is genuine and not from a phishing attempt. Check the sender’s email address and look for any signs of suspicious activity.

Method 2: Manual Acceptance via Google Ads Interface

If you do not receive an email notification, you can manually accept the request by following these steps:


  1. Log into your Google Ads account.
  2. Navigate to the Admin section.

  1. Click on Access and Security.

  1. On the Access and Security page, select Managers.
  2. Here, you will find the pending request. You can choose to accept or deny it from this page.

Security Tips:

  • Regularly review your account’s access and security settings to ensure there are no unauthorized managers.
  • If you suspect any unauthorized access or fraudulent requests, contact Google support immediately for assistance.
  • Consider setting up additional verification steps for significant changes to account access.

What to Do After Accepting a Request:

After accepting a linking request, it’s advisable to communicate directly with the new manager to establish ground rules and expectations. Discuss the scope of work, objectives, and any specific guidelines you want to be followed. This ensures both parties are aligned and can work effectively together.
