    I would love to follow your instruction, to add a 2nd g-account on my Samsung S8, but it responds with: ‘information check’, ‘identity verification’ & ‘fill current password’. After doing so, it my password is not accepted i.e. is asked for again and again… (BTW password recently changed & confirmed).

      I don’t know what to say in my case I entered the password and it accepted it as correct and I have both accounts. Google easily allows two accounts on their device so it should be no issue.
