While at work I want to be able to access my personal account without linking it to the work account

While at work I want to be able to access my personal account without linking it to the work account

On my computer (MacOS 10.15.4), at work I am always signed in to a shared business account that we all use to access all our shared folders.

I would like to be able to access my personal account (on the Mac, not my iPhone), without linking it to the business account.

Is this possible?

Hi there @allmyforumposts, I hope you're well today!

 

If you don't want to link your accounts, if you're accessing your work account through the web then I can suggest opening your personal account from a different web browser or an incognito window.

 

This will prevent you from having to sign out of your work account to then sign in with your personal one.

 

If you're accessing your work account through the desktop app, then you could just use a normal browsing window to sign into your personal account.

 

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks Daphne, I had tried to sign in on a different browser but failed.

Then I tried to sign in with private browsing in Chrome, which also failed.

Only after trying to sign in with private browsing on Safari did I succeed!

I'm glad to hear that you were able to log in there @allmyforumposts!

 

Out of curiosity, were you getting an error when you tried to sign into the normal browsing windows on Safari and Chrome? Or were you not able to sign in there due to being signed into your work account?
