Setting a Password

Maybe you are still using the default password that Groups.io set for you when you were moved over from Yahoo! Groups, or perhaps you accepted an invitation and you have just been getting the messages by email. Now you want to read older messages or use tools on your group's website, such as files or the calendar, so you need a password to log in to Groups.io.

If you are using a default password:

  1. Open the group's home page with the default password.
  2. At the upper right, you will see your name and a down arrow (upside-down triangle). Click on your name.
  3. Click Account. The login page appears.
  4. In the Password field, enter a password that is a minimum of 6 characters long. This password will apply to all Groups.io groups that you're subscribed to.
  5. Click the Change Password button.

If you are a member of a group but haven't logged into Groups.io yet, or you have forgotten your password:

  1. Click on Log In (at the top right).
  2. Click on Email me a link to log in.
  3. When the email from Groups.io arrives, open the email and click on the link that was sent to you. Follow the instructions.
    Note: If you don't see the email from Groups.io, check your spam or junk mail folder.
  4. On the Groups.io page, click on your name in the top right corner.
  5. Click Account. The login page appears.
  6. In the Password field, enter a password that is a minimum of 6 characters long. This password will apply to all Groups.io groups that you're subscribed to.
  7. Click the Change Password button.

Note: The login page also contains options for logging in with Facebook or Google.

 

Changing Your Email Address

  1. Log into Groups.io. 
    Note: If you don't have a password already, you can create one from the main Groups.io page or use one of the other options (log in with Facebook or Google). See the instructions above.
  2. On the home page for your group, click on your name in the top right corner.
  3. Click Account.
  4. On the login page that appears, enter your new email address in the Email field
  5. Click the Change Email button.
