Do you have multiple Facebook accounts? It's actually quite easy to switch between Facebook profiles without switching browsers.

Whether you have multiple Facebook accounts or share a computer with friends and family, you will need to know how to switch Facebook accounts. Thankfully, the social network makes it easy to quickly switch between profiles using the same browser.

In this article, we'll walk you through quickly switching between your Facebook accounts so you can save time.



How to switch between Facebook accounts

  • After logging into Facebook, click the button Account next to Notifications .
  • Select Change account , then select Log in to another account .
  • Enter your username and password and click Log in . If you have previously selected Remember password , you will not be prompted to enter your password when you switch accounts. If you have not selected Remember password , you will receive a request to enter the password for your account.
  • Now, when you click on the Switch Account button, you should see both accounts. On New Facebook, there is no visual indicator for which account you are in.
  • If you decide you want to remove an account from your computer, go to Change Account, then click X to the right of the account name.

Although the classic Facebook is no longer officially available, there are extensions that recreate the experience. If you're using one of these extensions for or running a script to restore the classic aesthetic, you'll still follow the same steps as in the current version of Facebook:

  • After logging into Facebook, click the button Account next to Notifications .
  • Select Change account , then select Log in to another account .
  • Enter your username and password and click Log in . If you have previously selected Remember password , you will not be prompted to enter your password when you switch accounts. If you have not selected Remember password , you will receive a request to enter the password for your account.
  • Now, when you click on the Switch Account button, you should see both accounts. As this is a visual change for the new Facebook, there is still no visual indicator for the account you are in.
  • If you decide you want to remove an account from your computer, go to Change Account, then click X to the right of the account name.

How to stay safe when switching Facebook accounts

Since you have the option to always enter your password when you switch profiles, this feature is useful for family members who share a computer. Facebook also allows you to add up to 10 accounts using the Account Switcher feature.



It will also be useful if you have a separate Facebook login for work. This way you can keep all things work and personal completely separate.

While this password setting helps protect your separate accounts, it's good to be prepared. You should make sure that you know the best ways to secure your Facebook account for recovery.
