Linking Accounts

Learn how to link your accounts

Linking accounts together makes it easy to switch between them. By linking accounts you will have an access to all your Desktop.com accounts in the same user interface.

The first account which you use for initiating the linking process is the main account. If you activate MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) for a workspace when having linked accounts, the MFA is always registered to the main account. Please, learn more about MFA here

When you switch from one account to another, your security credentials are automatically switched as well. 

You can either link your account to the existing one  or create a new account during the linking process.

How to link an account to the existing one:

     1) Open Desktop.com and log in with your account

     2) Click  "+" button on the left panel under your workspace icon

   

     3) Click  Link your account button

     4) You will be redirected to the login page. Sign in using  credentials of the account you want to link to the main account 

     5) Click  Link account button
