Signing up for an account

Signing up for an account allows you to save talks to watch later, see a list of talks you’ve already watched, or comment on a talk. Creating an account is free!
  1. Fill out the new account form
  2. Check your email for a confirmation email from (make sure it wasn’t blocked by spam filters!)
  3. Click the link in the confirmation email and voila! You have a account!
  4. You’ll know you’re logged in if you visit 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 account.
