How to Log into Multiple Facebook Accounts

Do you have multiple Facebook accounts? I’m sure most of you have. I have seen many people having multiple Facebook, Gmail, Orkut, Myspace IDs. I myself have multiple Gmail IDs. Well, the reason? If you ask me then, I would say it’s mainly for privacy sake. I keep one account for personal use and other for general use. You may have some other reason. Well, now a question arises, how do you login to multiple accounts simultaneously? You might have observed that you can’t login to multiple accounts simultaneously in the same browser. For this very reason I decided to list some solutions. They not only apply for Facebook but also for Orkut, Gmail, Myspace, Yahoo, etc.

Multiple ID Login in Internet Explorer 8:

If you’re using Internet explorer 8 then open a window and login to the website you desire with one ID. Once done, press Alt and go to File> New session. Now a new window will open go to the website again and login with another ID. Pretty easy isn’t it?

Using Two Different browsers:

There are so many internet browsers to choose between. Some of the popular ones include- Internet explorer, Opera, Firefox, Chrome, Safari, etc. You can login to one Facebook account in one browser and the other Facebook account in another browser. This way you can login to multiple accounts simultaneously.

Multiple ID Login in Google Chrome:

Logging into different IDs is easier in Google Chrome as comes with an incognito mode that allows you to login to two different instances of the same website.

Firstly, login to the website with your primary ID in Google Chrome.

Now click on the tools icon and select New Incognito Window. Alternatively you can press Ctrl + Shift + N to open a new Incognito Window.

Navigate to the same website and you should be able to login with another user ID.

Multiple ID Login in Firefox and Flock:

Go to Nektra site and install the CookiePie Firefox addon. This addon also works on Flock browser. Once installed, restart the browser. Open a new tab and login to your account with the primary ID.

Now press Ctrl+T to open a new tab. Right click on the tab and select Toggle On/Off Cookiepie.

You’ll now see a cookie on the tab. Now, simply go to the same website and log in with another ID in this tab. Voila! Two Ids are logged in simultaneously.

Did you know that it is possible to Find who Deleted you from their Friends List on Facebook?

  • You forgot to give the link for Firefox plugin.

  • ooops thanks for pointing it out

  • Dave

    Using different web browsers is the best proposition to this problem.

    For firefox, it simpler to create different web browsing profile using the “-P” command.

    The other alternative (far easier) is to install Ti-Took ( Switching profile with Ti-Took is easy and simple.

  • Thanks for the tips Dave.

  • I want to have a AsianTown

  • Adrian

    Nice thanks!

  • That’s a great idea. I have a question. Do multiple FaceBook accounts from same IP get banned?

  • simone

    Thanks so much…….something so simple was driving me insane trying to work it out myself

  • SG


    i don think so. Because i have two computer at home, both using FACEBOOK at the same time, so i personally think, even if you got ban, just claim that you have 2 computer, using at the same time.

  • Thank you so much…You ROCK!

  • hatay

    What about the reverse? What if you want to open ONE account twice. I.e. if you want to have a FB account open to your wall, and want to play a FB game at the same time. Right now you have to leave the game if you want to go to see what’s happening on your wall.

    hatay i usually open a new tab (in explorer…dunno about the others)…then go to facebook homepage to see the updates while im playing a game in the other tab

  • you’re always able to do this. but if you mean after you installed the add-on maybe just open your same account in 2 different browsers. or log on twice?

  • Snoopy

    the new session for facebook doesnt work.I have tried it several times and each time I am logged out of the original session of facebook.

    I tried this cause I have a FB account and so does my sister, she wanted to check in on something quick so rather than shuttting my session down I tried the new session
    and it did not work.
    I was logged out of my session.

  • I do not want or need google chrome.  I share a laptop with my live in Boyfriend. I have a seperate FB page.  Suddenly, Yahoo and FB have melted us together and I cannot log in to my wall. I keep getting My BF wall instead.
