Jäbôrd Sign In / Sign Up FAQ
How do I create a Jäbôrd account?

There are 3 ways to create a Jäbôrd account:

  • With your Email. Enter your email address during sign up. We’ll email you a link for verification. Click on the link and you’re ready to set your own password. Once you set your own password, you can sign into Jäbôrd.
  • With Facebook. Choose to sign up for Jäbôrd with Facebook. Give your Facebook credentials for authentication. Once the authentication is completed, you will automatically be signed in to Jäbôrd.
  • With Google. Choose to sign up for Jäbôrd with Google. Give your Google credentials for authentication. Once the authentication is completed, you will automatically be signed in to Jäbôrd.
Will you ever post to Facebook or Google without my permission?

No, never.

Will updates in my personal information on Facebook be reflected on my Jabord account?

No, the importing of basic information is a one-time action.

If I’ve already created a Jäbôrd account by signing up with Email, Facebook, or Google, what will happen if I try to sign in with another one of my accounts?

If your email addresses are different on those networks, this will create a new Jäbôrd account that won’t be linked to your previous account.

If I use the same Email address on Facebook and Google, will you connect my Jäbôrd account to those networks?

Yes. As long as Jäbôrd can verify that the same email address is associated with those accounts, you can log in with any of them.

For example: You create your Jäbôrd account using your email. The next time you log in, you log in with Facebook. If the email you use on Facebook is the same as the email you use on Jäbôrd and is authenticated with Facebook, we’ll automatically log you into Jäbôrd. This will connect your Jäbôrd account to your Facebook. This also works for Google.
