There are two ways to create a VidHug user account: with an e-mail address or with Facebook sign-in.
Both sign-up methods will create a unique account. Please, remember to always use that same method when logging in. If you used an email to sign up, log in with your e-mail address. If you used Facebook to sign up, log in using the Login with Facebook button
E-mail Sign Up
To create an account with an e-mail address, enter the following information:
- Your e-mail address
- A password of at least 8 characters in length
- A confirmation of that same password
- A display name, that will be shown on pages associated with your Group Hugs, visible by people you invite
Any validation errors will be shown on-screen.
When all of the information is valid, click the Sign-Up! button to proceed
To verify the validity of your e-mail address, VidHug immediately sends you a confirmation e-mail.
Before proceeding, visit your inbox, open the e-mail, and click the verification link.
Clicking this link verifies your e-mail address and opens a confirmation page (that can be closed).
Congratulations, if you've made it here, you have successfully created and verified a new VidHug user account. You can safely close or navigate away from the registration confirmation page and proceed to the Login page to log in to your account.
VidHug also supports account creation based on your Facebook account. By simply clicking the Sign-Up with Facebook button (and, if needed, authenticating yourself with Facebook), a VidHug user account is instantly created using the e-mail address and display name associated with your Facebook account.
Your e-mail address and name are the only information that VidHug accesses from your Facebook account (and only at the time of sign-up). VidHug does not access other information or take any actions (such as creating a post) using your Facebook account.
For certain Facebook account privacy settings, Facebook may not share your e-mail address with VidHug. Your sign-up will still complete successfully, but VidHug will prompt you to add an e-mail address to your VidHug account, which you must-do if you wish to receive app notifications.
