Create Your Account

You can create your Gather account before or after you create a Space! Having an account lets you easily enter and manage all the Spaces you've created. If you're not signed into your account, you may lose your Space or changes you've made to your Space when you clear your browser cache.

Tip: By default, when you try out Gather, you are an anonymous guest—you are not required to sign in or create an account. If you choose to create an account, it's completely FREE! You don't pay a thing until you make reservations for events or subscriptions.

We provide several ways to create and sign in to your account on our website and in your Gather Space. 

Create an Account

You can create an account easily from Gather.town—just click Sign up in the top right of our home page.

Am I logged in?

If you're not sure if you're logged into a Space, click your name and status in the Bottom Bar. In the Bottom Menu, the bottom item is Sign Out if you are logged in. Your email address also displays beneath your name at the top of the menu. If you are not logged in, the bottom item is Sign in, and you won't see an email beneath your name, as pictured below.

The bottom item will show either Sign In or Sign Out, depending on whether you're logged in.

We're delighted you've created an account with us, and we hope you'll love Gather as much as we do.
