Browser tricks to help you customize CRM: InPrivate Browsing

Many times I have to either test security for various users, or make customizations and test them with different accounts. As you’ve probably seen by now, your authentication/authorization is cached with the first session you log in, and any subsequent browser sessions will use the same account to log you in automatically.

Now, the trick to logging in with various users at the same time is to use the new InPrivate Browsing (Ctrl+Shift+P):

This will create a new and completely independent browsing session, allowing you to use multiple credentials at the same time.

Once you start the InPrivate session, your screen will look like so:

  1. Hello Nico, I’ve tried this and opened two private browsing sessions against the same CRM Online instance with two different users/credentials. It doesn’t seems to work… Can you explain?
    Thanks in advance. Best regards. Javier.

  2. When you open the second InPrivate session, log out the user and log in with your new user. This will keep both sessions active with different users. Also, I’m not sure if this matters or not, but I’m running both/all sessions InPrivate in such scenario.
    I’ve added a new screenshot showing the two windows opened with two different users.
