I am logged in with several Google accounts in the same browser

Google Sheets can have troubles to manage sessions with several accounts.
Usually the issue arises if you are connected to several Workspace accounts at the same time. It is a current configuration for people who use their professional account along with their personal accounts.

Solution for Chrome Users

If you use Chrome, you should create different profiles to keep your Workspace accounts separated.
Make sure each profile is connected to one Workspace account only.

With profiles, you can keep all your Chrome info separate, like bookmarks, history, passwords, and other settings.

Profiles are ideal for:

  • Sharing a computer with multiple people.
  • Keeping your different accounts, like work and personal, separate.

If it does not work, try the next solution.

Solution for other browsers

With most of the browsers in the market, you do not have the possibility to complete separate your accounts through different profiles, however

  • you can always run Google Sheets with the right Workspace account in an incognito window
  • or you can log out from the Workspace accounts you don’t need to use with Google Sheets
