How to Access an Account

by Angela Neal

Whether you have created an account on a social media site or on your bank's website, you will need to remember your user name and password so that you can access it later. Sometimes when you create an account on a website, you will be sent a confirmation key. If you forget your password or user name, you can click on a link and enter your email address that is linked to the account so you can be sent an email with your user name and address.

Log on to the Internet and go to the site where you have created an account. If you haven't created an account yet, follow the necessary steps and sign up for one.

Write down your user name and password that you will need every time you want to log in if you have just created the account.

Enter your user name and password in the appropriate boxes on the front page of the website.

If you are on your own computer that no one else uses, you can check the box that says "Remember on This Computer." If you are on a computer that more than one person uses, leave the box unchecked.


  • check Choose a password that you can easily remember but not one that is easy for someone else to guess.


  • close Don't give out your password.
