Learn how to link your accounts

In this article:

Linking workspaces together makes it easy to switch between them. By linking workspaces, you will have access to all your Desktop.com workspaces 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.
