When trying to open my Google Adsense account (attached to [email protected]), I got a message saying:

Thank you for your interest in Google AdSense. While reviewing your application, we noticed that your account information matches a currently approved AdSense account associated with [email protected]. Because our policies do not permit multiple accounts, we're unable to accept your new application at this time.

If you'd like to add [email protected] as a login to your approved account, you can do so by following these steps:

Sign in to the AdSense account associated with [email protected] at www.google.com/adsense.


Once you've invited [email protected] as a login to your account, please check that address for an email invite and follow the instructions to add this new login.

The problem is, the account [email protected] does not belong to me!

Why do I need to log into the account of another person, in order to get access to AdSense with my google account?

EDIT: I tried to use the login trouble-shooter. This is what I got; none of the options match the message that I actually get.

I understand your question, generally Google does not allowed to use multiple adsense account from same person. May be someone, who's name and home address is just like yours, and got adsense account. And Google may be think, you applied for another account, that's why you got this notification.

What I suggest to do is, Just slightly change your home address and apply again for Adsense with different email ID, don't worry you can change email ID, from setting option once you got approved. Alternative way to contact Google AdSense team, and say I have no AdSense account, you can check my history, but it will take some days/months.


This user does not have an AdSense account. Please check that the email address matches your AdSense account address. New accounts may take up to 24 hours to appear
