Hi,

No, they are the same. Instead you can invite them to access your adwords account without giving your username or password. You can do this by going to my account->account access on adwords.

If you can't follow my directions please see here

Hi Alice,

 

Never, ever, ever, for any reason, share your login and password.

 

Just a little advice. Best of Luck!
