When using Google you may need multiple Gmail accounts. This is particularly useful if you register on a lot of websites and don’t want to give your “main” Gmail address. We generally change to a different Gmail user account to avoid getting spams on our personal email. But it can be very uncomfortable and annoying to change and switch between Gmail user accounts. In this tutorial, we will see an easy and fast way how to login to different Gmail user account on Android, iPhone, and Windows without logout. We will also see how to remove a Google account from your phone.
To login with a different Gmail user account, First login into your Gmail account. Then click on your profile picture in the upper right corner. After that, click on “Add another account” and login to a different Gmail user account.
Why Would You Use Different Gmail Accounts At The Same Time
By using different Gmail accounts at the same time, you will make sure to have a clean main Gmail mailbox. This is pretty handy when you register on non-trustworthy websites, or a website that you are sure you will never visit again but requires registration to view its content (Like some forums who require registration).
Also, this method can allow you to have multiple family members use the same computer or smartphone with different Gmail user accounts. You don’t have to log out when a family member need to use the computer or phone for 5 minutes and login and type your password again. I personally find it practical especially on Youtube. You will have different recommended videos on each user account as each account can be subscribed to different channels.
Player on Android will also enjoy this trick as it allows you to have multiple accounts on your favorite games. You can switch between Gmail accounts to create or login to another account in your game. And if you are not a gamer but have kids, this allows you to let them play on your phone with a different Gmail user account without logout and without altering your personal Google account.
Having a unique experience on each account is very worthwhile. I personally have an account for professional purposes where I’m subscribed to job-related channels on Youtube and never use it to register on websites not related to work to avoid spam. And another personal Gmail account that i use for social media and some others for trash and everything else. This allows me to completely isolate my different Gmail accounts. I can lend my phone to my little brother to let him play his games or watch his kid’s videos on Youtube without worrying of getting my Gmail spammed with games ads or having my Youtube recommending me videos of Disney !
