Signing in

Zulip offers three ways to sign in: e-mail and password, Google credentials, and GitHub credentials. Your organization's administrator may choose to enable or disable any of these options. So don't worry if your login page doesn't have some of the options described here!

Signing in with your email address

You can sign into your Zulip organization using your email address by following a few simple steps.

  1. In the field labeled Email, enter the email address that you used to sign up for Zulip. Please note that the Email field is case-sensitive.

    If you've forgotten which email you used to sign up for Zulip, you can try searching your email accounts for the e-mail you received when you first signed up. The subject line is "Welcome to Zulip".

  2. In the field labeled Password, enter your password. Please note that the Password field is case-sensitive.

    If you've forgotten your password, see the Change your password page for instructions on how to reset it.
