I cannot log in to Google Analytics using my normal gmail/analytics login. It says "You need a Google for Work account to login". Please help!

Hi,

by any change have you migrated to Google Apps recently?

No, this is a brand new gmail account. The only thing I have used it for is Google Analytics. On one system, I can log right in and get to the GA dashboard. However, on another system, I try to log in to the account and it gives me the Google for Work message.

Another network at another office. I'm using Chrome on a Mac in one office, and the other office is PC. I'm not sure what browser. We opened this account for a client and they cannot log into their analytics using the gmail and password we established without getting this Google for Work message.

Hmm,

Do you have Manage Users privileges to this account?

Can you go and take a look on the Admin side Account settings and Users. Does anything look funky in there?

I'm not seeing anything out of the ordinary in the Google Analytics account settings.

Can you add another user to the account and test the login again?
