  • many accounts are you allowed to have?

    Are you allowed more than one Gmail account?

    Anyone know? Or are Google against you having more than one email account with them?

    I am sure their TOS stipulates this.

      Here's Google's Account TOS. In Google's GMail Program Policies under Prohibited Actions it states:

      Create multiple user accounts in connection with any violation of the Agreement or create user accounts by automated means or under false or fraudulent pretenses

      The above only prohibits the creation of multiple accounts with intent of violating the TOS. In the Help Center Google addresses how to sign in to multiple GMail accounts:

      Signing in to multiple Gmail accounts

      If you've registered more than one Gmail account and you'd like to switch accounts:
      1. Click Sign out at the top of any Gmail page.
      2. On the sign in page, enter the username and password for your other account.

      The source to that section click here. I doubt Google would have addressed that question in the nature that it did if having multiple accounts were in violation of the TOS. Anyway, don't take my post as matter of fact. I'm just saying...

        I have two because of issues when creating an adwords accounts. I use the second one for testing only and the main one only rarely. It's never been an issue and their support suggested doing this with the issues I had.

                When changing my Adsense to my gmail account they also provided a link in case I wanted to sign up for a new Gmail account just for Adsense so multiple accounts are ok
