Can I use my personal Gmail account at the same time as my HSU Gmail account?

Printer-friendly version

Yes, but it's a little tricky at first.

The easiest way is to use a different browser for each account (e.g., Firefox and Internet Explorer), but that's not always possible.

Here's how to configure your account so it will work for you:

  1. In your Humboldt account, click Settings
  2. Click the Accounts tab
  3. Click Google Account Settings (in the last section, titled Change account settings)
  4. Where it says "Multiple Sign-in", click Edit
  5. Turn it on and check the box next to each line to confirm you understand the implications
  6. Click Save
  7. Sign out of HSU email & close your  browser
  8. Open your browser and log back in to HSU email
  9. Click pull-down arrow next to your email address (in the top right-hand corner), and select Sign in to another account
  10. Log in to your personal account
