When you first load Medal, you will be introduced with 4 options to sign up with.
The Social Accounts Medal currently supports for sign up:
You can also sign up using the standard method of an email and password.
If you select one of the social options to sign up, a browser will open redirecting to the social option of choice and will ask you to grant permissions to access your information. Once you have allowed access, Medal will create a new account using the name of your social media account name/handle.
Once an account has been made, you can use the same option again to log into your Medal account.
Please note: Medal will create an account from the Social Media Account that is currently logged in on your browser. If you have multiple accounts on a supported Social Media Platform, make sure you are logged into the Social Media Account you want to link Medal with. If you created an account with Medal using a Social Media Account and try to log into Medal while signed into a different Social Media Account in your browser, Medal will create a new account.
Medal will not assign an email and password to your account if you choose to sign up using a Social Account. In order to add an email and password to your account, click on the Settings Cog Wheel > Account > Edit
If you select Sign Up With Email, you will be able to choose your Username, Email Address and Password during the sign up process.
Regardless of which option you choose, you can always add/change your email and password and link more Social Accounts to your Medal Account by clicking on the Settings Cog Wheel > Account
Please Note: You can only assign one of each Social Media Accounts to Medal For example, if you have 2 Twitter accounts, you can only link 1 Twitter account to Medal
