If you purchased a membership through Slate's iOS app, you’ll need to create a Slate account, or sign into an existing account, in order to access member benefits on Slate's website.

(We can’t create your account automatically, or link to an existing one, because Apple doesn’t share your email address or other information with us.) 

After you sign up for Slate Plus in the app, you’ll be presented with a screen prompting you to sign in to an existing Slate account or create a new account. If you follow that prompt, your Slate account will be connected to your Slate Plus membership.

If during this step, you clicked the Apple ID option, you will always need to click the Apple ID button on the sign in page to log into both the app and the website. (This does not associate your sign in with your Apple ID email address, but instead with an anonymous Apple sign in.) To change your sign in type, email us at plus@slate.com

If you don’t create an account when you first purchase a Slate Plus membership, you can connect one later. In the app, tap the menu and then Log In / Sign Up.

Once you have created a Slate Plus account, check out our instructions here to access the members-only podcasts in your favorite outside podcast player.
