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 proccess 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 the 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:

  • Open Desktop.com and log in with your account
  • Click the "+" button on the left panel under your workspace icon
