Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am currently using Chrome on two computers, and each is linked to a different Google Account (one personal, one work). My Stack Overflow account is linked with my personal account, but I would like to use it with my work computer. I have read other questions' answers and found something that should work but does not: How can I link two Google accounts to one Stack Exchange account?

This solution looks like it should work, but every time I reach step four instead of going to step five, I get logged into my current account. I have also tried it where I log into SO with my personal Gmail, then in Gmail, log in to my work Gmail. When I do step four, it asks if I want to login with that account not add it to my current one.

I don't know if this makes a difference, but I did create my SO account using the log into Google option. If this is the issue, I would like to know if it is possible to merge the two accounts into one.

Try adding an account via the settings dashboard.

Google Account - Add Account

That way, you should be logged into multiple accounts when going to step five.

Thank you this worked. You might want to add this to your solution on the linked question. Will I have to link the accounts the other way(login to my work one and add my personal to it) or is that irrelevant/taken care of? – RMDan Jun 8 '12 at 3:04
I just added it to the other question, just wanted to make sure this work first. You should be able to log into StackOverflow via either account. – user184498 Jun 8 '12 at 3:07
