Change Default Gmail Account Using Google Multiple Sign In

If you’ve started using multiple sign in for your Google accounts, then you’ve probably noticed that one of your accounts is always considered the “default account“.

This can become a problem when trying to access calendars or documents that your “default” account does not have permission to access.

Whichever account you log into Google with first will be set as the default account. In order to switch your default account, you need to log out of all your Google accounts and then re-login starting with your desired default account.

How To Switch Default Google Account:

  1. While logged in to your Google account(s), click on the drop down menu in the top right corner next to your name and select “Switch Account“.
  2. Google Account Switch

  3. When the dropdox changes click “Sign Out Of All Accounts“.
  4. Sign Out of All Google Accounts

  5. Sign back into Google with the account that you want to be the default account.
  6. Google Sign In

  7. Use multiple sign in to sign in to your other accounts. Same steps as above except in step 2, click “Sign in to another account“.
  8. Google Multiple Sign In
