Manage Multiple Accounts with the MailChimp Keychain

account-keysIf you’re a web designer who manages lots of different MailChimp accounts for your clients, keeping track of all your client login/password info could be a real chore.

Not anymore! We just launched the MailChimp Keychain.

Here’s how it works…

Basically, your clients give you "keys" to access their accounts (they send an invitation to you via email).

send-a-key

All your different keys show up on your Keychain (located in the "Account" area in MailChimp).

Then, you can just login to those different accounts with one easy click:

mailchimp-keychain

No more passwords to memorize! No more sticky notes all over your monitor!

What’s really nice about this "peer-to-peer" approach is that if you and your client ever "part ways," they can just revoke their key and moooove on. No need to help them setup a new account, export and re-import lists, etc.

Also, if you have a keychain with access to multiple accounts, you can give your own key to someone else in your agency (maybe someone with "super account status") who will also have access to your keychain.
