Logging into your Login.Gov Account

Log in page. It has a section for Email address and password.

You will now log in using the account you just created.

After you successfully enter your Email address and Password, the system will use the primary authentication method you selected when you created the account.

In our example, the primary method was Phone. So the authentication is with a security code received to that phone number. It will work the same way the initial phone option worked. The system will text you a code and then prompt you to type that code into a sign-in screen.

Note: Every time you log into your account you will need to use one of the two authentication methods you set up for the account.
