Share Gmail Account: Share Your Gmail Account Without Giving Password

In this post of mine I had discussed a very useful web trick by which you can give access of your gmail account to someone without sharing the password. After granting the permission; the guest user will have the authority to read/reply to the mails and use Google services associated with your account but he won’t be able to change your account password or any other account setting.

Wait! Wait! This is not a joke. I am serious about the title I had bestowed to this post of mine. Many of you won’t be aware about the fact but it is possible to give access of your Gmail account to your friend or employee but without sharing the password.

When you give access to the guest user; you will allow him to read your mails; reply to them; exploring the contact list or to use any other Google service associated with your account BUT he will neither be able to change the password nor can hack your profile by changing the account setting.

Google has provided this amazing feature to every gmail user to add guest admin in your account. The guest author will have the permission to use your account but he will not be able to change the password and hence you can remove him from the list whenever you want. This is a great feature for the official use or when you go on your vacations and you want someone to take care of your business deals.

To teach you how to how to give access of your Gmail profile without sharing the password; I am explaining the complete process in short easy steps.

Follow the steps and learn the trick easily.
