Can MCC manager change my Access Level lower than Administrative ?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I think it's very clear, I linked my Adwords to MCC account.

From MCC's side, can the MCC manager change my Access Level to "Read only" for example ?

And if happened, can I change it back to Administrative ? or he must do it himself ?

 

Thanks for your time

Yes, the MCC manager can change your access to read-only. 

 

No, you will not be able to change it back to "adminitrative" yourself, they or someone else with administrative access would need to do it.

 

I'm not sure who your MCC manager is, but just tell them not to change your access.  If you fear they will do it anyhow, ask yourself if this is actually someone you want managing your account. (I can't imagine blocking any of my clients that way.)

Hi Adwords_Pro,

If your only access to an account is now 'read only', you will not be able to change your access level. You will need an admin to assign admin access back to your login credentials.

If you have admin access (which you should if you created the account) they should only be able to change the notification settings.

 

You can terminate their access but they cannot change you access level or remove you from the account.

Thanks Theresa,
I got your point, but I just wanted to make sure that I know what can & cannot be done to the permissions.
