    Hello,

    I am planning to release my little Android app. Now, I am asking my self if I should create a separate Google account for my app(s) and creating a Developer Console account there. Shall I separate the private Google account from a development account?

    What is your opinion? How do you handle this? Do you have multiple Google accounts? A private one and one for your apps.


    Thank you for your help.

    Of course you should always separate public and private activities. Same principle applies for Facebook, you should never use your personal Facebook account while developing apps for your clients.

    Agreed, have two separate accounts when doing business and development. Like for example, you wouldn't want ppl blowing up ur emails while you're out doing other stuff (which could result in a ton of msgs/sounds/stress/angry spouses, etc..). With a separate acct, your personal device will actually remain personal. Food for thought..
