You can log in to ChatGPT with your Google, Microsoft, or Apple ID accounts. You don’t need to create a new email address. Instead, you can simply use your existing Google, Microsoft, or Apple ID to log in. Here, we’ll explain how you can do that.
How to login to ChatGPT with your Google, Microsoft, or Apple ID accounts?
Signing in to ChatGPT using these account is simple. Follow the steps below to get started:
Visit the ChatGPT Website or Open Mobile App
If you are connecting from a desktop device, first click on the login button on the opening page. If you are using mobile app, you can skip this.
Then, you will be greeted with a screen like the one below. On this screen, you will see options for “Continue with Google,” “Microsoft,” or “Apple ID.” Choose the type of account you want to proceed with.
You can also find similar options on the login screen of the mobile app.
Verify Your Account
When you select one of the Google, Microsoft, or Apple ID options, you will first be redirected to the respective account’s page, where you’ll need to log in to that account.
After logging in, you will be asked to grant permission to the ChatGPT application. Once you give your approval, you will be redirected back to the ChatGPT page.
Verify your phone number
If you’re trying to log in to ChatGPT with your Google, Microsoft or AppleAI account for the first time, you will be asked to verify a phone number specifically for the initial login.
Enter your phone number and input the code you receive on the screen to confirm and verify your phone.
Once you have verified your phone number once, there is no need to verify it repeatedly. After completing this step, you can start using ChatGPT.
Is phone number verification mandatory?
Yes, it is mandatory to verify your phone number whether you choose to use your email address or one of the mentioned options such as Google, Microsoft, or Apple IDs.
Verifying your phone number is a requirement set by OpenAI. Without verifying your phone number, you won’t be able to access ChatGPT.
What login option should you choose to use ChatGPT?
There are four different methods for creating or logging into an account: using a new email address, your existing Google, Microsoft, or Apple ID accounts. There is no single best option to choose.
However, it is a best practice to always log in with the same account. Because the previous conversations in your logged-in account are saved.
This way, you can access your previous conversations from the left window and continue your communication with ChatGPT from this conversation history whenever you want.
Additionally, by managing everything from a single account, you’ll have the convenience of centralizing your activities.
