Ad Account Access Options

As I shared above, access rights to advertising accounts can be one of 3 options: Analyst, Admin, Advertiser. Below, I will specifically analyze the access rights that you can share with the Agency. Each access rights option contains different functions, so please pay attention.


For the “Analyst” option, Agency can view ads and access ad reports. This option is for those who need the Agency’s help in extracting important metrics or analyzing indicators to optimize advertising. If you just need them to analyze metrics or check ad status, this option is the safest for you.




When selecting “Advertiser” rights, Agency can view, edit, and set up advertising campaigns. Of course, the advertising campaign will have a payment method that you have previously set up and the “Advertiser” permission does not allow the Agency to edit the payment method. Agencies with “Advertiser” permission can only view the payment method of the advertising account.




If you select “Admin” rights, Agency can create, edit, view ads, access ad reports, and edit account payment methods. People with “Admin” rights can also add other Facebook accounts to the advertising account. This is the highest permission to access and edit everything of the ad account. So be careful when choosing this right.



If you find these options a bit confusing, you can check out the access rights summary table below to get a clearer understanding:
