Create an Atlas Account

Estimated completion time: 5 minutes

You can register for an Atlas account using your Google Account or an email address.

Considerations

You can register with and login using your Google account or using your email account.

Google Accounts

If you register with your Google Account, the following differences apply when using your Google account with Atlas:

  • Google manages your user details, email address, and password. You can’t change this information using the Atlas console or API.
  • Google manages your 2FA. You can’t use Atlas two factor authentication and won’t be prompted for | a-service| 2FA verification when you log into Atlas. Google should verify your identity using Google 2-Step Verification.
  • Google creates a new Atlas account if you change your Google Account email address. Ask your Organization Owner or MongoDB Support to link this new account with your existing organizations and projects.
  • You can unlink your Google Account from Atlas. Refer to the Google Account Help article to unlink your Atlas account from your Google Account.

MongoDB Cloud Manager Users

If you use MongoDB Cloud Manager, use your Cloud Manager credentials to log in to Atlas. You can then create a new Atlas project from Cloud Manager.

Register a new Atlas Account

Start at the MongoDB Atlas registration page.

  1. Click Sign up with Google.
  2. Enter one of the following identifiers for your Google account:
    • your Gmail or Google Apps email address

  3. Click Next.
  4. Enter the password for your Google account.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Review and select the checkbox to accept the Terms of Service and the Privacy Policy.

After you register, Atlas creates an organization and project where you can deploy your first cluster. You can add more organizations and projects later.
