Be able to login on office 365 with multible account's
I have multiple accounts for multiple componies for office 365 but its difficult to manage this seeing that I need a diffrent browser for every account.
My experience has been horrendous with this. I was logged into one tenant, logged out, shutdown my browser, later needed to manage another tenant and logged into that tenant. Well, the main session in admin panel was the proper account. When I went to Exchange Admin Center, the 'realm' shown in the URL was that of the account I just logged into. Good, that's expected. HOWEVER, the EAC was actually connected to the previous tenant's account, despite all the checked indicators to the contrary. How did I find out? Well, I created a transport rule that "wasn't working". Until I got a call from a member of the other account to report a strange behavior that mimicked the desired behavior for the tenant I was working on.
So, I went back, duplicated all steps, and then checked that the realm and account were correct in admin panel and URL of EAC. But checking the account, via my user icon, revealed the user account was that of the earlier tenant. In short, EAC never logged the account out. And worse, it showed that everything was right. So, I had made a major change to the wrong account.
Note that all tenants have my initials in the icon at the top, so it's not readily noticeable as being different, and I thought everything else I checked was adequate. I was mistaken.
I consider this a severe security issue. The level of absurdity of not being able to SECURELY manage multiple tenants and trust that a logout really is a logout cannot be overstated.

I am an IT consultant working around 20-30 tenants (and their users) per day - support wants me to clear my browser cache (every 10 minutes??).
Now I have a customer that wants to use "communal workstations" for data entry to xls on sharepoint - 1 workstation for 10-15 roaming users, and they need to track who edited the files - this only works on G-Suite;(.

Terrible waste of time without this.

Yes, it seems ridiculous that you have to "work around" with multiple browsers and/or private/incognito modes in order to work with multiple Office365 accounts. I work for three companies and want to be able to use all three accounts in just one browser - MS Edge?
Come on Microsoft, get this happening. Many companies or moving to O365.
