How to use Shift on multiple computers (Shift v8)

You can access your Shift account across as many supported devices (Mac and Windows) as you'd like for no additional cost! Your basic Shift setup will be available across multiple devices (added email accounts and apps). Some settings will not sync, however. Check out our complete guide below for using Shift v8 across multiple computers. 💻


  1. Download Shift v8 on your computer(s)
  2. Launch Shift v8 and select "log in to existing account"
  3. Sign in using your Primary Shift Account
  4. Log into all your emails and apps

When you use Shift across multiple computers, there is some notable information and features that will not yet sync across your devices (don’t worry, our development team is working on it)! Here’s a breakdown of what information will sync and what information is kept local:


Feature Sync Across Computers?
Added emails and apps
Added extensions
Global bookmarks
Opened web tabs
Saved passwords & form data
Browsing history
Browser settings


When you download Shift for the first time on another device, you will need to set up your preferences outside of your added accounts and apps. Any changes you make outside of added accounts and apps will not be reflected automatically across your devices.
