No problem! You can create a Google Account for any email address. A Gmail account is not required. Create a new account
Why can't I create a username and password?
Coggle only supports Google login. We believe this is the best way to keep your data safe.
Storing usernames and passwords may seem simple on the outside, but there's a lot of intricacy: password recovery, 2-factor authentication, fraud detection, brute-force attack detection, and securely storing hashed and salted passwords. We believe that leaving these tasks to an external provider is the right thing to do – leaving us more time to focus on creating a great mind-mapping experience.
What do you do with my Google account?
We only ask Google for access to your basic profile information. This includes your name, profile picture and your email address. We don't ask for access to your contacts, emails, Google Drive documents, or anything else that we don't need to make Coggle work.
Can you read my emails?
No. We don't need, and don't want, access to your emails! We just request your basic profile information from Google, and don't have access to anything else. We can't alter or change any setting on your Google account.
Can I use another Authentication Provider to access Coggle?
Currently we only support Google login to access to coggle.it. If you're interested in hosting your own version of Coggle with Active Directory login then get in touch with our enterprise sales address.
