Logging In to and Out of Your Snap! Account

You should be logged in whenever you are in Snap!. Here's how to check if you are logged in:

  1. Click the Cloud menu in the tool-bar.
    • If it says "Logout" and your user name, then you are already logged in.
    • If it says someone else's user name, then log them out and log in with your own user name.
    • Otherwise, choose "Login..." and enter your user name and password.
  2. Click NEXT (on the top right of this web page) to continue.
    Remember to log out of Snap! (using the Cloud menu) when you are done.
