Google Forms: You Need Permission - This form can only be viewed by users in the owner's organization

I have received an email in my Gmail account to fill up a Google form. But when I was trying to open it, I was getting the following error: You need permission - This form can only be viewed by users in the owner's organization.

After a bit of research, I found that I have added multiple accounts into the Google Chrome browser and the account from which I was trying to open the Google form, was not the default account.

So what was happening is when the link I was trying to open it attempting to open with other Gmail account and this was the cause of the error.

You need permission - This form can only be viewed by users in the owner's organization.

To resolve it, I opened another browser (Microsoft Edge), in that I never logged in with my Google account, so I logged in using my Gmail account from which I need to open the Google form. And after logging in, I opened that email and clicked on the link and Google form is opened successfully.

You can also try to sign out all other Google accounts from your current browser and leave signed in the only one account from which you want to open the form.

You can try this if you have the same scenario.
