Creating an Account or Signing In

Quick Summary

At Indeed, our mission is to help you get a job. You can create a free account to access a range of valuable tools. Begin a job-search journey with us if you're over 16 years old. Ready to start or sign in? Follow the instructions below.

Creating an account

If you meet the minimum age requirement, here's how to use Google, Apple, or a unique email to create and open an account.

Google

If you're using a desktop or phone:

  1. Click or tap the Google logo to sign in.
  2. Select Continue with Google.
  3. Follow the prompts to link Indeed to a Gmail email.
  4. Select Job seeker and Create account.
  5. Review your Account settings.

What to expect

This Gmail email address will link to an Indeed account.

Apple

If you're using an iPhone:

  1. Click or tap the Apple ID logo to sign in.
  2. Select Continue with Apple.
  3. Follow the prompts to link your Apple ID to Indeed.
  4. Select Job seeker and Create account.
  5. Review your Account settings.

What to expect

Your Apple ID will create a new Indeed account, which will appear in your profile as an alias email. It looks like this: example@privaterelay.appleid.com.

Unique email address

  1. Enter your unique email in the Email address field. Use an email address that's not Gmail.
  2. Click or tap Continue.
  3. Select Job Seeker.
  4. Choose a six-digit password.
  5. Click or tap Create account.
  6. Look for the checkbox and the phrase I am human. hCaptcha protects your account against fraud and abuse.

Confirm your account

Another step is to verify the account. Here's how:

  1. Look in your email box for a verification email. Check your spam or junk folder if you don't see it. Request a new email if the link expires.
  2. Click or tap Confirm your Indeed account.
  3. Sign in using this unique email address.

Sixteen years old is the minimum age requirement.

If you are not yet 16 years old, you'll reach that age soon! We want to help everyone find jobs, but we have to follow each country's privacy and data collection laws. Ask a trusted adult to help you read up on our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

What to expect

We're required to close accounts and delete data of anyone under 16 years old. 

Do you have unique circumstances?

We will update this page later if you need to appeal this age requirement. Thanks for your patience. 

Signing in

Here's how to use Google, Apple, or a unique email to sign in.

Important: It's important to sign in using the same method each time. You'll avoid creating duplicate accounts. For example, don't sign in with an Apple ID if you created an account using Gmail or another email provider.

Google or Apple

Sign in using Google's passwordless sign-in feature or by using your Apple ID if you created an account on your phone.  

Using a one-time passcode.

Sign in with a unique password using these steps.

  1. Look for the prompt to Sign in with login code
  2. Check your email inbox. Look for the subject line Indeed login code. This helps protect your account against fraud and abuse.
  3. To finish the process, follow the prompts to paste the temporary six-digit code from your email. 

Technical support

Solution: Sign in using the incorrect email address. Next, access your Account settings to make email corrections.

Solution: Sign up for hCaptcha accessibility access. Follow the prompts to set up cookies for your browser or phone.
