Mobile App: Switching between multiple accounts

I feel a little stupid, because the app introduction says it is possible:

But I cant quite figure out how this works? I can log in with my private account but it only has one workspace, same goes for my company account.

How do I sign in with both accounts at the same time?

Hi Arvid!

Sorry for the confusion! Right now we only support switching between workspaces in the same account. You’ll only see multiple workspaces if your account is associated with an Org account or if you’ve been added as a guest to other workspaces.

We plan on adding support for multiple accounts eventually (meaning different email logins), but we don’t have a date to share yet.

I want to reopen this topic since the new Figma mirror update is awesome! and the use of it has increased drastically. Please consider to resolve this issue.

"Dear

As a freelancer and designer at an agency, I often switch between accounts. Figma recently already shipped the account switch onto the desktop app and native clients. However, unfortunately not for the mobile MIRROR app. Therefore, I would kindly recommend adding this feature to the mirror app as well!"

Much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Switching between multiple accounts is easy to do in Figma, but the feature doesn’t exist in Figma mirror. Instead, I have to see mirror not working, remember that I last used it on the other account, log out, and log back in with the other account.

Ideally, Mirror would know that I have switched accounts in Figma, so I don’t have to think about which account I last used it with.

Or, Mirror would include an account switcher so I could stay logged in to each of my accounts and have an easier time switching back and forth as I work on different projects.

It would be nice if I could just switch between my personal and work email while using the Figma mirror app, rather than logging out and logging in with another account. It is cumbersome.

+1 here. Now that FigJam is supported on iPad it should definitely be possible to switch between accounts.

Hey @Rene_Galindo1 this is definitely on our roadmap and something we are planning on working on!

Hope you’re enjoying FigJam on iPad as well!

Hope can provide the account switch. Our team uses personal Figma and team plan. But we must log in/out of the APP when browsing documents.
Looking forward to this update.

Hello,
I have the same problem because I have two accounts (Work and personal). When you have a side job or just want to create a personal project it can be complicated to switch your accounts.

please add this feature it is so annoying with 2 factor authentifications, password managers and multiples accounts when you work with multiple companies…

@dvaliao don’t know if you are the right person to ping in such a case (if not please forgive me), but would it be possible to move this topic to the Share an Idea section of the forum? Or would one have to make a new post for that?

Hey @Arvid,

Sure thing! I moved it over on your behalf.

Hi, just checking if there have been any progress? The multi team support on mobile would be such a great feature. Right now each time I want to test some ui with the mirror feature I need to login and logout, I’m reduced to just send over screenshot with airdrop :face_with_head_bandage:

Hey there,

recently you just have added the abbility to switch accounts in Figma (like between private and professional/company account).
It’s even implemented in the community profile – where you can select your main account (a feature that I love!)

BUT
At least on Android I can‘t switch between accounts on the mobile app (no matter it’s the official, beta or early access version) – you still have to sign out and login with your other account.

Is this a feature you consider to be added in the future?
Somehow the UI feels, like switching is intended and it’s already added to all your other products.


I’ve just added screenshots for better understanding. Both app versions have some sort of team/workspace section, but as I can’t add another account to the app (like on the actual Figma Web/Desktop app), I can’t switch between my accounts (luckily there are two app versions :sweat_smile:)


This is the public Figma android app


This is the beta Figma android app.

Feature request: As a user, I’d like to be able to stay logged in with multiple accounts in Figma mobile apps and switch between them easily just like in the desktop app and on the web.

Right now, I have to log out from one account to log into another which is a bit of a nuisance and keeps me from actually using the apps, given that they are first and foremost a notification hub at the moment.

The story at the moment looks like this:

  • Receive a notification about a comment from Figma on your phone via email or Slack
  • Try to follow the included link
  • Get redirected to the mobile app
  • Don’t arrive at the destination due to being logged in with the wrong account
  • Log out
  • Log in with a different account (using 2FA and everything)
  • Go back to the notification and try again

Thank you!
