Logging into TED.com

Last updated: Mar 10, 2017 02:31PM EST
To log into TED.com,
  1. Click the ‘Log in’ link in the top right corner of the page.
  2. In the window that appears, enter the email address and password you chose at registration
  3. Click ‘Log in.’ 
  4. Once logged in, you should see a photo place holder (this is your account menu button) in the upper right-hand corner where ‘Log in’ used to be.
Here are a few login errors you may encounter, and possible solutions:

“The password you entered is incorrect.”

Solution: If you have forgotten your password, or perhaps made a mistake during registration, 
you can request a password reset.

“No account matches this email address.”

Solution: It’s likely that you have not yet registered for an account.

If you believe you already have an account, it may be that you’ve used your email
to register for our TED daily or weekly newsletter, which is a different sign-up process than a
TED.com account. In other words, it’s possible to receive emails from TED without having
an account. 

Want to know how to create a TED.com account? We have an FAQ article for that.

“Your email and password don’t match.”

Solution: Your account may still need to be confirmed via email. You should have received a confirmation email in your inbox shortly after registering. If you cannot find that email or have trouble with the link, please see our FAQ on Confirming an Account.
