How to add read-only access to Google analytics?

Add users to Analytics GA4

  1. In Admin, under Account or Property (depending on where you want to add users), click Access Management.
  2. In the Account Setting -> Account access management, then click on the blue + and "Add users".
  3. Enter the email address for the user's (Google Account or Google Workspace Account needed) 
  4. Select Notify new users by email to send a message to the user.
  5. Select the permissions you want. The most common is to give "Viewer" access or "Analyst" access.
  6. Click Add ( on the top of the page to the right)
  7. The Google email address you use to add a user and the password associated with that address become the Analytics login credentials for that user.
