Allow multiple login sessions in web browser:


Platform: Windows

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.

Internet Explorer:

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.

  2. I did already do that using private window and normal window, and two different browsers (Brave and Edge, not in your list) but I’ll try your way. Do the extensions work for Brave and the command for Edge ?

  3. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility
    issues. When I look at your website in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, excellent blog!
