Dear,

 

We have lost one of websites GA admin account password and it was created by one of our vendor.

 

Unfortunately to recover password vendor also had forgot the backup mobile number and email address used to recover password from https://www.google.com/accounts/recovery/recoveryoptions 

 

We don't have Adwords account.

 

Kindly suggest way to recover admin password of our GA account.

 

If possible also reply on <edited by a Community Manager as noted below> asap.

 

Regards,

Subodh

Hi Subodh,
You’ll need an Adwords account to do so. A vacant account without any payment works too .There is a way to reclaim your Google analytics account. I'm sharing a Googler's article on this .

Hope this helps.
Thanks

just set up an adwords account and then ask to get GA back.

What kind of vendor were you using - that is unbelievably sloppy on their behalf.
From what i recall when you try to recover it gives you the last few digits of the phone number so unless they are huge they should know what number it is.

Take the lesson here to ALWAYS have your own internal email address added as the backup for recovery and with full admin access.

Bets of luck!

Hi Thanks,

I have successfully added analytics.txt to http://www.qatarsummerfestival.qa root folder.

I tried to Adwords account for http://www.qatarsummerfestival.qa website and linked to onqinfo@qatartourism.gov.qa mail id but as shown in attached screenshot how to make it free account because it is asking Credit card Info. In first step of "About your business" I had to 1 USD as "Your budget".

Kindly suggest how to create free Adwords account.

Regards,
