I read the threats already regarding the concern, but I still have a question which I need to be answered;

1) Can we use two different user accounts (me and my brother with different skills) on the same internet and on the same PC?
2) Currently, my account is login in my PC and Laptop, but I was thinking to give my laptop to my brother for his use forever. I will use my PC only for my account and he will use his laptop for his account at the same time(simultaneously) on the same internet? Is there any issue?
3) Can we login simultaneously from our own laptops/PC on the same internet?
4) I was thinking to expand my business, so I will build my office soon, where different people will use the same internet to use their accounts on their respective laptops, even I will also use my account on the same internet. Is there any issue?

Thank you so much for your time! 😊
Please answer in bullet points as asked to get more clarity

Hi Muhammad Shahzad,


I would like to answer your question in general since I would be providing the same reply for each. Using the same IP address and logging in to a laptop/computer that is also used by another freelancer is not a violation so long as you are logging in using your own Upwork credentials. What you should avoid is account sharing which is a serious violation of Upwork TOS. You should not share your log in details, nor have another freelancer use your account to work on Upwork.

No one would like to share their credentials and no one is interested in that...

Thanks for your response

Hi Mahedi,


No, it is not a problem to share the same IP address with more users as long as you don't share your account with another person. It's important that you don't share your log in credentials with anybody and don't log into other users' accounts as it's a serious violation of Upwork's Terms of Service.
