We asked, you told us: Here's how many Google accounts you have.
Google doesn’t limit the number of accounts you can have on the platform. You can create as many Google accounts as you want and link them to one another. You can even jump from one Google account to another quite effortlessly. So we surveyed Android Authority readers and asked them how many Google accounts they have. Here’s how people voted.
How many Google accounts do you have?
We received just over 2,300 votes in our poll and found that a very tiny fraction of our readers don’t have a Google account. Only 1% of the voters said that they don’t own a single Google account. The rest of the vote was almost equally split between respondents who said that they have one Google account (25.7%), two Google accounts (27.7%), and four or more Google accounts (27.7%). Meanwhile, 17.8% of our readers who participated in the poll said that they have three Google accounts to their name.
What’s clear is that a majority of the poll respondents have more than one Google account. The comments on the poll article shed more light on why people prefer holding multiple accounts with Google.
ThatOtherOtherGuy: I only have four, but my three dogs each have their own.
Nick V: As someone who has duties in different organizations, I keep a gmail account for each of them, so that I can maintain order, and if I choose to give up that duty, I can just hand off the email to the next person.
Cat: I use one main account for everything and a secondary account for emails only. Helps me to organize my mails better. If i get a mail on the secondary Google account then i know it’s an important one.
John Oliver Abella: 1 main + 1 backup + 2 extra (extra storage, email, and for multi-game account)
PhaserArray: 11 in my password manager, but there could be a few more with old bad passwords.
Albin: Only one nonsense Gmail account and no commercial relationship with Google, used for Android, siloing Google services, and a few free websites. What Google gets is a stingy grouch disabling whatever he can under its privacy controls I use Firefox and more privacy-protective apps and platforms wherever “real me” credit card identity is important.
