  5. In a text box password enter the password for the second account.

  6. Select Enter

  7. Repeat this process to add more Gmail accounts.

To unlink your Gmail accounts, sign out of one of your linked accounts.

Quickly switch between multiple Gmail accounts

To switch between two or more Gmail accounts or open them side by side in browser tabs:

  2. Select a profile picture or a name.

  3. In the list of linked accounts, select the email address for the other Gmail account.
