Usually, you're signed in to Setapp on your Mac automatically — especially if you install Setapp right after registration. But sometimes, you may need to enter your credentials manually; this article will show you how.
Note: When you sign in to the Setapp account, it doesn't sign you into the Setapp desktop on your Mac automatically.
- Open Setapp and click "Sign in to use apps" in the top-right corner.
Alternatively, click the avatar picture and choose Sign In.
- Enter the email you used while registering in Setapp, then click Next.
If you've registered with an Apple ID or Google account, click the corresponding icon to sign in.
- Type in your password, then click Sign In.
Note: If you've already created a Setapp account using your email and are now trying to sign in via Apple ID or Google, it may create a new one. This happens if your social media and Setapp accounts are linked to different emails. However, if an email is the same, you'll be offered to associate the social media account with Setapp to simplify further logins.

Switching to another account on your Mac
Let's imagine you've got a new account for Setapp. That may happen if you separate Setapp for home and work or switch to a Setapp team.
If so, when you sign in, Setapp may automatically use your previous account email. To provide a new one, click "This is not me" in the dialog with a password. Then, enter the new credentials and sign in.
