No sign in with a different account in a sharepoint site guest user (option)

Christos Christopoulos 20 Reputation points

We have invited external collaborators with Microsoft emails to our SharePoint site (they are external users in Azure). If I, as an internal user, want to log out from the page, I have the option to "Sign in with a different account." However, the external collaborators do not have this option.

What could be the issue, and is there a way to display this option for them?

    Here is my test result. And per my research, it is by design for external users.


    There is no option to display "Sign in with a different account" for external users.

    You could submit the suggestion in the feedback portal to improve user experience.
