There are many reason when you need multiple accounts at the same time. Suppose you use Google’s different products with different Gmail IDs and you don’t want to Logout from the current one to Log-IN to another Gmail account. Or you want to manage your multiple Facebook IDs or Twitter Account at the same time. Every site detects and saves our cookies on their server so usually only one cookie is served to each individual- this is how Sign-In function works on every site. So usually you can’t login with multiple ids on the same site. But As a TechSpree Reader you should not just limit yourself like others. Come lets win this limitation together.

Use multiple account in Chrome using User Option:
Google Chrome is a very popular browser and you probably love this browser too. But only a few knows this trick. This trick is valid for unlimited accounts and its very effective. You can manage as many accounts as you want by following these steps:
Step 1: Click on Chrome Menu Icon on the left side and Click on Settings (menu item) .
Step 2: Use your mouse and wheel down untill you find Users Tab. Now click on Add new user.
Step 3: Now select any Profile Picture and Add User name. Please add specific name so that you can understand later which profile is created for what purposes.
Step 4: Now a new Window will be opened. In this new window you can Log-In on the same site but it will be treated differently. You will see a shortcut of this User Profile on your Desktop too for easy access.

- In the Drop Down menu Click Add Account
- After clicking Add Account a new tab will be opened where you can sign-in your additional Google account. Repeat this process and Add all of your Google accounts
