We know that staying signed in to your account can be a tricky process—we all read on different devices, using different browsers and apps at different times. We want to make the experience for you as easy as possible. So we’ve created a guide for you to maintain access to your Atlantic account as often as possible, and to troubleshoot when you can’t.
Steps You Can Take
Keep Your Information Stored Across Devices and Browsers
Apple, Google, and other technology companies have made great strides in helping customers keep their secure information handy. Apple, for example, has created iCloud Keychain, which stores your information across your Apple devices and works on Safari. If you have a Google Account and use Google Chrome, you can sync your information and manage your saved passwords.
Use a Password Manager
There are a number of password managers available today, including 1password and LastPass. These ensure you can access all of your passwords in one place, and consistently use strong passwords for your accounts.
You may have to sign in one time to each browser and device you use once, since most don’t share your private information with each other. That means you should only ever have to sign in once to The Atlantic, especially if you follow the steps above. If for any reason you do find yourself signed out, though, here are two ways you can get back in to your Atlantic account:
Use Email to Sign In
We’ve created a simple way for you to sign in by using only your email address, and without needing to enter a password. Just follow these instructions:
- Open the sign in page.
- Select "Need help signing in?" below the email address and password fields.
- On the next page, enter the email address associated with your account.
- Open your email inbox on the same device and click the link you received from The Atlantic.
- The link will return you to The Atlantic and sign you in to your account automatically.
Sometimes, you may also run into a situation where you have to sign in to The Atlantic more than once. This will often be when you’re using an app like Facebook or Twitter. Due in part to privacy policies, many apps don’t store your information for long periods of time. When that’s the case, you will, unfortunately, have to sign in again.
