Hello guys, I do hope you can help me out with this.



My Boss has invited me to share an AdWords account using your own email address and password. We are having an SEO campaign and his sharing the account to me.  But I've always got "Error" in the end

Hi @Habitation L,


There can be two ways -


  1. Use a different email ID for this access. An email which does not have an access to any AdWords account already.
  2. Remove your access for AdWords from this email ID and then follow the process to get access to this new account. 


Accordingly to policy, one email ID cannot have access to more than one AdWords account. If you want to remove your existing AdWords access for this email first, reading this article will be helpful. 


PS - Do not include any personal information in your post. Remove your email and account ID from the images above. Your support in abiding by the community guidelines is appreciated.
