Remove Client Accounts from Your Google Analytics

google analytics

When we’re building a site, and particularly when we’re migrating a site, clients often give us Google Analytics access.

When you’re migrating a site from one platform to another, it’s really easy to break the URLs and lose a lot of traffic. So it can brea really important to have Google Analytics access and monitor the site’s traffic.

But, Google never allowed us to leave a Google Analytics account. I had access to sites I worked on back in 2007!

Recently that changed and you’re now allowed to leave accounts that shouldn’t be clogging up your Google Analytics dashboard. Here’s how to do it:

Remove yourself from a Google Analytics account

Head over to and login.

You’ll see your main dashboard:


Click “Admin” in the toolbar:

  1. Select the account you want to leave via the pulldown Account menu.
  2. Click User Management

Click the blue “Remove myself from this account” button:


Click OK:


That’s all there is to it. Process complete!

Where exactly is the “Remove myself” button supposed to be? All I see is what is in this screen cap – [url=]…[/url]


Hi Paul
Looks like you might be the actual owner of this account, rather than the just a user.
You may have to pass ownership to someone else before you can leave, or delete the account.


Thanks Steve. I’ve got several old sites that clients, for whatever reason just abandoned, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to get them out of my dashboard, but I always end up getting lost in there.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
