The first time you visit Loomio you will go through a short process to set up a Loomio user account.
You won’t need a password and your computer will remember you in future.
Loomio user accounts are identified by email address
You will need to provide an email address to make sure your Loomio user account is yours.
- Tip: Use an email address that is uniquely yours, so fellow group members will easily recognize you and know that your comments are from you. To avoid confusion, do not use shared and role based email addresses like info@... or ceo@... where more than one person can access the account.
If you have any problem signing in to Loomio, you can always regain access with the email address you used when you set up your Loomio account.
