If you’re already an Atlantic subscriber
Can I still access The Atlantic’s full website?
Yes! All existing and new subscribers have unlimited access to The Atlantic’s website. If you already have an account, just log in. If you don’t, simply create an account and connect your subscription. If you need help creating an account, our help center has detailed instructions.
I only get the print edition of the magazine. Do I still get access to the site?
Yes! All subscribers have full access to The Atlantic’s website. You also have access to other digital benefits, which you can explore in your online account.
I just purchased but I still can’t get full site access. What’s happening?
After you entered your email address and password during the purchasing process, you should have received an email with the subject line, “Please complete your online registration with The Atlantic.” Clicking the link in the email activates your account. If you can’t find the email or the link isn’t working, please contact our Customer Care team.
I registered but I’m still not able to access the site fully, and I don’t see my subscription status reflected in my online account area. What’s happening?
You’ll first want to make sure your online account is connected to your subscription. If you still need help, though, please feel free to contact our Customer Care team.
I set up my account, but I keep getting logged out. Can you help?
We know that not remaining signed in to your account can be frustrating! We’ve created a step-by-step guide for maintaining access to your account.
How do I cancel my subscription?
You can cancel in your online account and receive a refund on the remainder of your term. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Care team.
How can I change my subscription plan?

Do I get free articles in the iOS and Android apps, too?
