Is it allowed to have two basic (free) accounts?

Is it allowed to have two basic (free) accounts?

Hi all,

 

I have a basic (free) account linked to my work email. Am I allowed to register for one other basic (free) account with my personal email or would I be breaking any terms of service? Thank you for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,

Enrico

You can have 2 accounts yes 🙂

 

You just cannot get them both to sync at the same time on your computer - you need to either do one online via the website or use 2 user accounts on your computer.

Thank you very much, Mark, for the prompt and helpful reply! 

 

The two accounts would be on two separate computers — the work account on my desktop at work, and my personal account on my laptop at home — and I don't need them to sync simultaneously on the same computer. I was instead thinking of creating a shared folder between the two accounts, so that if while I am working on my laptop at home I happen to think of something that could be useful at work, I can always save it in the shared folder and find it later on my desktop at work. And of course, if while I am working on my desktop at work I happen to think of something that could be useful at home, I can always save it in the shared folder and find it later on my laptop at home. Do you think that would work?

 

Again, thank you very much for your help.

 

Best regards,
Enrico
