If you have multiple GMail accounts (for regular GMail or Google Apps), you might have experienced signing in and out or using different browsers to check your accounts. Google’s multiple sign-in solves this problem as it lets users login and use 10 Google accounts, including their products/services, open simultaneously in a single browser.

Here’s how you enable Multiple sign-in:

1. Click your name/email address on the top right corner of your screen. Click “Account settings”.
Account Settings

 2. Under the Personal Settings area, you’ll see that your Multiple sign-in status is off. Click “Edit”.

Personal Settings

3. Click “On” and check all the checkboxes under the “On” option. Click “Save”.
Enable Multiple sign-in

4. Sign out for the changes to take effect then sign back in.

To sign in to your other Google account:

1. Click your name/email address on the top right corner of your screen. Click the “Switch account” link.
Switch Account

 2. Click the “Sign in to another account” link to sign in to your other Google account which you’ll be adding.
