Switch between multiple Google accounts
You can add and switch between multiple Google accounts on Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides. To switch accounts on Google Drive, disconnect and reinstall Drive with your other account.
On a browser, like Chrome
Choose what kind of accounts you're switching between:
You can’t switch between accounts that end in @gmail.com in Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
To use two accounts with the same ending:
- If you frequently switch between accounts, learn how to set up different profiles in Chrome. You’ll use a different window for each account, so your files will open in the right account.
- To temporarily sign in to another account, use private browsing mode on your browser. Learn how to browse in private on Chrome.
To sign in to only one account, sign out of all your accounts. Then sign in to the account you want to use.
On Google Drive on your computer
If you installed Backup and Sync on your computer, sign out of one account and sign in with a different account.
