Backup and Sync’s latest version 3.37 brought along the ability to log-in with more than one account (maximum limit is 3). In this tutorial, we will show you step-by-step, how you can add multiple accounts to the client:

  • Click on Backup and Sync icon on the system tray, and then click on the three-dot Menu
  • backup-and-sync-three-dot-menu

  • Select ‘Add New Account‘ option
  • backup-and-sync-add-account-option

    Note: Every time you add a new account, the client will repeat the entire setup sequence again.

  • Once an account is added successfully, the number of Backup and Sync icons on system tray will increase to two or three, depending on the number of accounts
  • 2-accountsbackup-and-sync-3account

  • As a maximum of three accounts can be added, the option to Add New Account automatically disappears once you hit that limit.
  • Also, while logging-out, you will be given the option to quit all three accounts, or a specific one.
  • backup-and-sync-add-account-option-diasppears

That’s it.

Currently, I am pursuing Ph.D (Psychology), and have been teaching the same for past four years. Coming to PiunikaWeb, I know it was a complete switch over, but the idea was appealing enough to put in all the effort it called for. My work primarily involves research. Oh, and yes, some of the photographs you see here are clicked by me. Overall, I am enjoying whatever I am doing, and hoping you’ll also feel the same reading all my articles.
