The 3 Steps
I'll assume you're logged into your dashboard already so if you haven't done that yet, do so now.
Step 1: Once you're inside the dashboard, navigate to the left-hand navigation bar of your Google search console account.
Scroll down until you see the “Settings” section and click on that.
Step 2: From there, select “Users and Permissions.”
Here, you'll find a list of all the current users with access to your account.
Step 3: To remove a user, simply select the “Actions” menu next to their name. You'll then be presented with the option to either remove their access entirely or change their permissions to a lower level.
If you choose to remove their access entirely, select “Remove Access.” You'll then be prompted with a confirmation box asking if you're sure you want to remove the user. Select “Remove User,” and their access will be immediately revoked.
Alternative: Alternatively, if you just want to increase or decrease a user's permissions, you can select “Change permissions”
And that's it!
By following these simple steps, you can quickly and easily remove a user from your Google search console account.
It's important to ensure that your data remains secure, and removing any unnecessary users is a crucial step in doing so.
Reviewing Your User List
Reviewing your user list at least once a quarter is a good idea. I also incorporate this into my process for whenever anyone leaves my team so that I don't accidentally leave anyone on who shouldn't have access.
