Google Analytics Dashboard
Signed into wrong Google account (5 posts)

    I was setting up the plugin when I was signed into the wrong Google account and now I can't change it.

    I've tried removing the plugin and reinstalling it to no avail.

    Is there a way to change the Google account the plugin is using?

    Go to settings in your dashboard > google analytics dashboard

    Then click the drop down and select the right account under Available Accounts

    Thanks but I didn't mean the Google Analytics profile but the Google Analytics account i.e. myname@gmail.com

    Any ideas?

    I am also having the same issue. I will keep you posted if I find a solution but if someone could help! For some reason logging in with the wrong name makes this plugin unusable.

    I had the same problem before. This is definitely a serious bug the author must fix. The plugin must provide an option to unlink a Google Analytics account.

    I'm sharing my hacky process to unlink my GA account which worked for me.

    1. Open up gad-admin-options.php in this plugin folder

    2. Search for the string:
    if(get_option('gad_auth_token') == 'gad_see_oauth')

    3. Add the following code above the 'if' statement:
    You should be able to add this line in your theme's function.php before loading the plugins. It should work the same.

    4. Refresh your webpage in Settings->Google Analytics Dashboard. The previous Google Analytics account info should now be removed already and you can see the button for authorizing your Google Account. But don't go ahead yet.</storng>

    5. Remember to remove the 'update_option' line you added.

    6. Now you can go ahead to use the plugin as normal.
