How to Separate Personal and Business Accounts with a Few Simple Steps

social media

Some people have a hard time keeping their personal and business lives separate. They use the same email, the same passwords, and the same social media accounts for both. This can lead to major problems if your personal account gets hacked or if you accidentally post something private on your professional account. Follow these few simple steps to separate your personal and business accounts with ease.

Why You Need to Separate Personal and Business Accounts

It is important to separate your personal and business accounts for a multitude of reasons. For one, it is a good idea to maintain some level of privacy for your personal life, especially if you are running a business. Your business account can be used for promoting content and products. But it should not be used as a platform to post about your personal life. Or anything that could be considered private information.

This separation also helps with maintaining the authenticity of the account. If you are posting things that are more on the personal side in your professional account, followers might think that you are not as serious about your work, or they might feel like they have access to more information than they should.

Step 1: Setup a New Gmail Account for Your Business

In this section, we will go over the steps for how to set up a new Gmail account for your business. First, you should go to and click on ‘Create an Account’.

You should then enter your email address and password as well as the desired country where you would like to have this account registered.

Next, you need to create a security question which is used in case you forget your password or need to reset it if it is compromised by someone else. You can also set up two-step verification so that when logging in, Google will send an authorization code that changes every 30 seconds via SMS or voice call. Next, you will need to add your service account to Google Sync. You can do this by clicking the settings gear icon next to your username in the top right corner of the screen and selecting “add a service account.”
