Howdy folks,


Today, I’m happy to share Microsoft’s new account manager with you! The account manager makes it SO much easier for you to use multiple accounts with Microsoft services.


With the new account manager you:


  • Can sign in and out of your Azure Active Directory (AD) account or your Microsoft account.
  • Can view and switch between your remembered accounts. (For this feature to work, your browser must have third-party cookies enabled.)
  • Always have a link in the same place to view or manage your account.

The account manager is now available to everyone on Azure portal. Azure portal users, especially developers, often have many different Azure AD and Microsoft accounts. They frequently need dev, test, and production accounts and in some cases also have their own personal Azure subscriptions as well. So Azure is the perfect first place to launch our account manager and learn from the customers who most need this capability.

The Azure portal is the first Microsoft site to adopt the account manager. You’ll start to see it appear in many other Microsoft services over the next 6-9 months, including the Azure DevOps and Office.com services as well as apps like Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, the Microsoft Store, and more!


We really hope you like using the new account manager and as always, we’d love to receive any feedback or suggestions you have!

This doesn't work for me when Windows Integrated Authentication is enabled. As soon as I type the second credential, I get routed back in with the first.

I have also the same problem as Greg Biggs, the post before.

Frequent Visitor

Multiple logins work for first Work account, first personal account and failed on second personal account.  The first and second personal accounts were created years apart and are from different domains, yet the new feature reports that I am already logged in when making the second attempt to login using a different account.  When the second personal login fails, the message is that I am already logged in as the first personal login.
