    Are you stuck with that service account email they handed to you, or could you switch it up and use another email you’ve got linked to your active accounts?

    Service account credentials are like a special ID card made on Google Cloud console, and you use it to show your app is legit. This can even get you pre-approved access to secure data, such as with Google Analytics when you add the service account email as a user. But just a heads up, you can’t use a typical Gmail account for this. You’ll need to use something called ‘oauth2’ to ask the boss or user of the Google Analytics account for access.

    It largely depends on the specific service and their policies. For some services, you might be stuck with the initial service account email they provided to you. However, for many online services such as Google, you can certainly switch to another email linked to your active accounts. That being said, it’s always a good idea to check with the particular service as there could be unique restrictions or particular settings that might affect your ability to change or swap emails.
