Having more than one email accounts is a norm in today’s age. People use different emails for different needs. If you are an Android user, you at least have one Gmail account on your device. You added it on the setup process when using your Android device for the first time.
Gmail for Android supports multiple accounts. Not only you can add your Gmail accounts, but you can also add your email accounts from different services such as Yahoo and Outlook.
Is it necessary to have more than one email accounts?
As mentioned earlier, having multiple email accounts is a norm in today’s age. You can use your email accounts for different purposes. You should not use the same email account for business and personal errands. You should not also use your main email account to register to online tools, online services or social media platforms.
Taking apart of emails for different purposes can benefit you a lot. Your life will be more organized. Most importantly, you don’t need to provide your very personal information (your main email account) to register to social media platforms or online tools.
