Solution: Because of security purpose Magento by default disable the admin login share session and therefor while in development mode you need to enable this from:

Admin >> "Stores > Configuration > Advance > Admin > Security" and change value of "Admin Account Sharing" to "Yes".

Check attached screenshot for better understanding.

    Thank you for this solution. This seems to be an addition in the 2.1.x line, didn't have that problem before. I wish Magento would stop annoying with such new "Features"

    XML Path admin/security/admin_account_sharing, just for the record.
