Sometimes it is expected to have multiple accounts logged in simultaneously in the same web browser. The browsers are not allowed to login with multiple accounts for the same website such as Gmail, Facebook and many others. In this article, learn how to solve this problem and allow multiple login sessions in a web browser.
Allow multiple login sessions in web browser:
The browsers typically share the same session cookies across all the tabs, which is the default behavior. However, you have to close the current session to log in with different user credentials.
There is an option in Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox browser to allow multiple login sessions. Let’s see how you can make this possible with beautiful extensions and built-in command options.
In Internet Explorer Properties
window, navigate to Shortcut
tab. The Shortcut
tab has the field called Target
and there you will see the full execution path for iexplore.exe
. To allow multiple login sessions, iexplore.exe
has to be executed with the command option –nomerge
. So, you would need to modify the target execution path by appending the command option –nomerge
at the end of the string.
In Google Chrome
, there is no direct command option like in Internet Explorer
. Here you need to install a special extension called MultiLogin
which is free.
After installation, you can see the MultiLogin
icon appeared at the top right corner of the Chrome
You need to click on the MultiLogin
icon to start new session and the new Chrome tab will be opened with identical session number. For each click, identical session get created and a new tab will be loaded.
Just like Google Chrome
, in Firefox
also you need to install a special extension called Multifox
which is free
After installation, you can see the Multifox
icon appeared at the top right corner of the Firefox browser window.
When you click on Multifox
icon, the drop-down menu will be populated. Further you need to select menu item New
to start the new session. Once the menu item New
is clicked, then the associated session menu gets created and appended at the bottom of the menu. Like this, you can create multiple sessions. The use session menu is to identify a particular session and switch to the session when needed. You can delete the particular session selectively once you are done.
