User Case: How to Manage Multiple Google Photos Accounts?


I'm a bit tangled up with different Google Photos accounts on my iPhone 12. Is there a way to juggle between these accounts seamlessly without constant logging in and out? Any hacks or app suggestions? Thanks!


Challenges in Managing Multiple Google Photos Accounts

With the increasing number of photos from our life, work, or study, many of us choose to create more Google Photos accounts instead of paying for extra storage space. However, managing different Google Photos accounts can present several challenges, primarily due to the limitations within the platform itself. Some of the key challenges include:

  • Switching Accounts: It's tricky to handle multiple accounts simultaneously in the same browser. You have to log in and out each time you want to switch, which can be a hassle.
  • Storage Management: Each account has its storage limit. Keeping track of these limits and potentially upgrading storage for some accounts can get complicated.
  • Sharing and Collaboration: Sharing photos between accounts or collaborating on albums isn't easy. Google Photos lacks smooth sharing options between different accounts.
  • Organization and Syncing: Keeping photos organized across several accounts might need manual effort. Syncing them between accounts can take time.
  • Privacy Concerns: Sharing personal photos across different accounts might raise privacy and security worries.
