Business Manager: Steps For Adding an Admin

Please note: You must have an Facebook Business Manager (BM) and Ad Account already set up for the instructions and screenshots below to be relevant. 

Add people to your business and grant them permission to assets in your Business Manager. These steps are for adding individual people to your BM, not partners such as other businesses. Learn more about partners in Business Manager.

Before you begin

  • Only admins can add people to your Business Manager. We recommend that you add most people as employees and only grant admin access to those who need it to perform their job.
  • Don’t add people to your BM if you don’t know them. People you don’t trust may create fake accounts and request access to your BM. If you’re unsure if a request is authentic, contact the person to confirm they initiated the request and that you’re comfortable adding them to your Business Manager.
  • Facebook never asks for access to a BM. If a business that claims it’s Facebook asks you to add them to your Business Manager, it’s not a legitimate request. We recommend that you deny the request and report it.
