Adwords 10 digit ID (top right hand corner). Is it safe to give someone this?

Basiclly I recieved a cold email asking if i wanted an audit of my campaigns. I said yes, they said i could either use their free tool (like word stream) or give her my 10 digit id (top right hand corner) so she can run me through my campaigns and make sugegstions.

 

Is this safe to do?

 

Kind regards

Hi Simon,

 

A big NO, never give your email ID or your 10 digit number to anyone, one can certainly dig information about your account.

 

Thanks,

Rajat

Hi @Simon S,

 

Unless you have any prior communication whether with Google AdWords support team or any agency to manage your AdWords account, don't share any such details.

In case you need help for your account management and optimization after your confirmation, grant only standard access/read only access but not the admin access.
