Do you want to allow a third party user to read the data produced by your Search Console account? If you do, we strongly advise you to add them as a user from your Search Console account instead of providing the email and password of the account to the third party user. It will save you from a lot of trouble.
The following is a tutorial on how to properly add a third party user in your Search Console account.
To add a third party user you will first need to log in to your Search Console account
Once you have logged in, click on the Settings tab.
Next, look under the Property Settings and click on Users and permissions.
And followed by clicking on the Add User button located on the top right hand corner of the screen.
Then, a popup will appear where you will need to add the email address of the user and also select the permission level which you want to grant to the user. The following is an example:
Once you are done, click the Add button.
And that’s all you need to do. The third party user will now be able to view the data by accessing Search Console.
#QuickFact: The Full permission allows the user to view most of the data and take certain actions. And the Restricted permission allows the user to only view the data. The following is a table that summarises the actions granted for the different permissions.
