In order to use Day One Sync, an account is required. You can create an account with an email and password, or you can use Apple ID to sign in or your Google account if you are using an Android device. Be sure to sign in with the same credentials on all devices in order to sync your data. 

Here is how to set up an account. 

iOS

  1. Open Day One > Settings > Sign In > New User
  2. Enter your email address or choose Sign up with Apple ID
  3. If you entered your email, follow the instructions in the email
  4. If you chose Apple ID, you are signed in using the credentials stored in your device Settings. This is secure. See here how we use Apple ID to sign in.

On Day One Android, you can sign in using your Google account or create a new Day One account. We recommend signing in with your Google account.
