Do you remember what you did before Reddit? Time spent on the toilet was much less interesting, that’s for sure. But did you know that you can also have multiple Reddit accounts?
It’s true. Although many of its users are okay with racking up the sweet Reddit karma on just one account, there are also a few reasons why keeping accounts separate might benefit you. Sometimes, it’s just nice to have a separate account to share embarrassing secrets from.
There are a few ways to set up multiple accounts on Reddit. Reddit Enhancement Suite(RES), for example, is an excellent browser plugin for, well, enhancing your Reddit experience. However, the RES route does take some time and technical knowledge to set up. On the other hand, as with operating multiple Slack workplaces and multiple Gmail accounts, Shift just has its ways of making all this even easier.

3. Click on “save”
4. When the login popup comes up, sign in using the second account
5. Repeat steps 1~4 with as many accounts as you want to have
Et violá, you’re logged into multiple Reddit accounts at once. Seems almost too easy to be true, doesn’t it?

If you don’t have Shift yet, it’s not the end of the world. You will just have to jump through more hoops using the Reddit Enhancement Suite to set up your Reddit accounts.
