Our Google Ads MCC (multi-client) agency account provides a mechanism for sharing Google Ads account access. This allows us to work in your account without having full access to your Google credentials or financial information. It is designed to protect both the Google Advertising customer and the Agency from various mishaps, and as a result, is the method for sharing access that best protects your interests, and account security (more about that in other articles).
To share access, you’ll need to email us your Google Customer ID # (CID). It is a 10-digit, hyphenated number, located in the upper right when you are logged in at Google.com/ads. Here’s the format: 123-456-7890
In the screenshot below, the CID and email address have been obscured. However, it shows what to look for in the upper right corner while logged into Google Ads.

Once we’ve entered your CID# to generate a request, you’ll receive an email from Google requesting your consent. It will be sent to the email address associated with your Google Ads account.
If you don’t or can’t receive the email, you can also approve the access request as follows:
- Log in to the Google Ads account and select “the wrench” (Tools & Settings) along the top of the page in the dark gray bar.
- In the right column (“Setup”), select “Access and security”.
- Approve the access request.
