How to Use ShareAccount to Share Your Online Accounts

Step 1: Download ShareAccount extension on Your Browser

The first thing you should do to securely share your online account is to download the ShareAccount extension for your browser.

This is very simple to do. The extension, or add-on, is available for both Firefox and Chrome.

Just type “ShareAccount browser extension for Firefox” or “ShareAccount chrome browser extension” in your browser’s Google search box, depending on the browser type you use.

Then click on the first top search result that appears to load the extension web page. Click on the Add to Chrome button to install it, or Add to Firefox, depending on your browser.

Then after the installation, the extension icon will appear by the top right corner of your browser. Or you can find it on your browser extensions list. You can also pin it on your browser top right so that you can see it whenever you need it.

Before you share your account with someone, make sure the person also has downloaded and installed ShareAccount on their browser.

Then load the website you want to share the account with someone and login as a normal user.

After logging in to your account and on the same browser page where you logged in, click on the ShareAccount extension icon. You will see the menu as shown below and click on the SHARE ACCOUNT button.

Step 2. Share the Online account With a Receiver

Now tell the person you want to share the account with to click on his own ShareAccount icon to see the same menu as above. This time instead of clicking SHARE ACCOUNT, the person should click on RECEIVE ACCOUNT.

Then a page like the one on the image below will appear. Tell the person to copy their code from the Your Code box and send it to you.

ShareAccount receive code

After you clicked on SHARE ACCOUNT in step 1 above, you too will see a page as shown in the image below with a field where you can enter the code sent to you by the receiver and the hours you want them to use the account.

Then copy and paste the code sent to you by the recipient above in the Recipient Code field and change the Timeout in hours to the number of hours you want. Then click the SHARE button. A Share result will be generated; copy and send it to the person you want to share the account with.

The recipient that owns the code you used will now copy the Share result code you sent to them and paste it in their own Share result field on their browser and click on RECEIVE. This will then grant them access to your account up to the hours you specified.
