personal gmail with adwords

I use gmail for personal email.  I use my work email for my mcc adwords. I can't have both open at the same time using Chrome.  My business email is wendy@pinkapedesign.com and I don't want to create a gmail account for this mcc adwords account.  

 

What is the best way to manage a personal gmail account as well as a work mcc adwords account tied to a different email?

 

thanks,

W

HI wporter66

 

Welcome to the AdWords communtiy forum :-)

 

I have the same issue myself, I don't use my work email for logging into AdWords either. The only way that you can work around this is using a different browser for the accounts eg I use chrome for my work email account and I use firefox when I am looking at a non related AdWords account or another email account. There's no 'clever' way of getting around unfortunately..............

 

Kind regards

Hi W,

 

As well, I'm in a similar situation.  What I did was add my personal Gmail email to the MCC.  I also don't actually attach any AdWords Accounts directly to my personal email.

 

If you cannot do this, then as previously mentioned, I also use the Chrome/FF option.

 

Good Luck!

Hi there, 

 

Hel_ipe is right, there isn't a quick work around, but one other option is to use an Incognito window if you are using Google Chrome. This would allow you to be logged into one account in your regular browser and another in your Incognito window. 

 

Hope this helps!
