No, readers do not need a password to log in, however, Pico offers the ability to set a password. We use email-based authentication for convenience and security, since passwords are increasingly vulnerable to being lost or stolen.
To setup a password
- Click on the publication logo in the bottom-right corner of your screen. If you do not see your account information, follow the prompt to log in.
- Click 'Manage Account' and then 'Change password'
- You can now login with your password
To sign in using email
You can log in from any device with the email address, Google account, or Facebook account with which you registered.
- When you log in with an email address, it will trigger an additional verification step. You will immediately receive a verification link sent from an email address ending in @trypico.com. Simply click on this link in your inbox to log in and return to the publication. You should only have to do this once per device, as you will remain logged in by default until you manually sign out or delete your browser cookies.
