Nothing tempers the excitement of downloading and installing a new app like coming up with the password you’ll use to access it. It’s an extremely important step but it can be time consuming between making sure it’s not a previously-used password, hard to guess and easy to remember.

For those of you that use Apple single sign-on (SSO), we’ve got you covered! No more fumbling with passwords or wracking your brain for which variation you might be able to use. Just a few clicks and you’re up and running!

Note: If you already have a Timely account with the same email address you use for your Apple ID, you can go through the following steps to set up Apple SSO to sign into your existing Timely account.

When you head to, you’ll now see the option to “Sign in with Apple” just below the fields where you would enter your username and password:

When you click on it, you’ll be taken to an external site hosted by Apple to sign in using your Apple ID email address and password:

Once you’ve signed in, you’ll need to select the email address you want to use with your Timely account. You can choose to share the email address associated with your Apple ID or hide that email address, meaning a dummy email address is set up in its place:

If you’ve set up multi-step authentication on your account, you’ll need to confirm the sign-in before you can finish signing into Timely. Once that’s done, you’ll then be able to sign in using Apple each time you go to use Timely!


What if I want to sign in with my email address and password again?

If you’ve already signed in with Apple previously, typing in your email address while trying to sign in will route you back to the “Sign in with Apple” set-up flow. If you want to go back to using your Timely email address and password instead of Sign in with Apple, select the “Enable Memory Auth” option from your profile. You’ll then be asked to enter and confirm your password before disabling Apple single sign-on.

What if I don’t want to share my email with Timely?

If you’d prefer to keep your Apple ID email address private, you can click the option to hide your email, thereby creating a randomized email address that will allow you to continue the registration process. Any messages you need to receive from Timely are sent to that randomized email address which is linked and forwarded to the email address associated with your Apple ID.
