Can I restrict access to Google Adwords/Analytics using a VPN or similar solution?

I would like to restrict access to Ga & Adwords, so that one can only able to log in if connected to our Office IP or if using a VPN. Is this possible?

Hi Emile P,

I don't believe that is an option. Use strong passwords, change them often.

Best of Luck!

Dear Emile,

 I agree with the Pete as there is no option to restrict the user via IP address. But yes you can make a strong password or give only read-only access to secure your settings.

 

Hope this will help.

 

Thanks,

Aslam

hi Emile,

I can advice you to use two-component authentication. If a mobile to re-type second password must be in the office, you are sure that nobody from outside can log in.

Thanks for the tip! I was actually considering 2FA an option. But didn't quite know how the setup would look like. Does this mean I need to create an OAuth app and connect that to Adwords?

No, you can just need 2FA to log in to Google account and adwords account. As a result nobody even see your adwords account without sms. It should protect your account from unauthorized access.

You just have to change security preferences on Google account which you are using to manage AdWords
