How to Improve Security by Replacing the Administrator Link with an Account-based Administrator User

As a calendar administrator, you will have more secure access to your calendar via your own personal user account as opposed to an administrator link. See the benefits of doing so.

To add yourself as an account-based administrator user:

  1. ​Head to Settings > Sharing and add yourself as an admin user:add admin users
  2. Login to your new user account and select your calendar from your dashboard. This will open up your calendar with admin access via your user account (i.e., not the administrator link.)
  3. If you have your calendar open via your “old” administrator link, close that browser tab. Remove the link from your bookmarks. You no longer need it.

​Optional (but recommended): Delete the previous administrator calendar link. Deleting it will prevent any unwanted access by those who had the link. It will also ensure that you access your calendar via your user account from then on.
