How to Create a Session Account

  • Updated

Session accounts are great for those that want to host their own meetings, webinars, events, and more. Once you create an account, you can also setup a joining profile that you can use for joining any session or room link. 

Note: Session accounts are not required to be able to join a room or session link. They are mainly recommended for those looking to host.


Creating an account

You will be redirected to the sign up page, which will ask you to create a Hopin account (parent company of Session). You can sign up with your Google account or use our password-less signup.
