- Fill out the new account form
- Check your email for a confirmation email from TED.com (make sure it wasn’t blocked by spam filters!)
- Click the link in the confirmation email and voila! You have a TED.com account!
- You’ll know you’re logged in if you visit TED.com and instead of a ‘Log in’ button, there’s a photo place holder (this is your account menu button).
Confirmation links expire! So if your confirmation link doesn’t work or if you never received one (and it isn’t in your trash or spam folders), you can request a new confirmation link.
Note: signing up for TED’s daily or weekly newsletter does not automatically create your account, you must sign up separately for a TED.com account.
