Back in 2010, Alex Chitu reported about the Multiple Login feature that was under testing then. Fast Forward today, it is now possible to add multiple accounts in the same browser. It is different from multiple profiles; we are talking about multiple google account, which lets you switch between Gmail, YouTube, or Google Drive accounts. In this post, we will show how you can login to multiple Google Accounts in the same browser.
How to login to multiple Google Accounts in the same browser
When using Chrome or Edge or Firefox, when you are sign-in using a Google Account, it becomes the default profile for all Google products. In simple words, if you visit sites like Google Drive, YouTube, Analytics, or anything where Google Sign-in works, it will use that account. Assuming you have already included that, here is how to add multiple Google accounts.
- Open Google.com in a new tab
- Click on your Profile image on the top-right
- In the flyout menu, click on Add another account
- It will open a login page, and here you can sign-in with another google account.
- Repeat the step to add as many Google accounts you have.
- Every time you want to switch. Click on the profile, and select the account you wish to switch
- The page will reload, and you should see the profile you had switched to.
You can verify by clicking on the profile icon, and taking note of the email id associated with that profile icon. It is possible that you may get asked for verifying again from time to time when cookies expire or where authentication is crucial.
We reported this in 2010
Yup that might be just possible with Google testing the new Multiple Login features which Alex Chitu has talked about on his blog. Below you can see the new option.
I was thinking of the reverse manner, though. What if Google can let us set options for which service I need to sign in again? For example, if I am signed into my Gmail, I would like to be asked again for the password when I access my Adwords or Adsense account.
I hope the guide to signin to multiple Google Accounts in the same browser was helpful. I am sure there may be a limit to the number of accounts, but it should be more than enough for a general consumer.
