Sign in to Slack

There are two ways to sign in to Slack once you've joined a workspace:

  • Navigate to the sign-in page from your browser 
    You’ll need your Slack URL, email address, and password.
  • Use the workspace finder tool
    You’ll just need your email address.

Note: If your workspace or Enterprise Grid organization requires two-factor authentication (2FA), you'll need a 6-digit authentication code when signing in.

Troubleshoot issues with signing in

If you’re having issues with signing in on any of your devices, here are some steps to troubleshoot. 

Forgot your password?

  1. Visit the sign-in page and enter your workspace URL.
  2. Click the Forgot password? link and enter your email address. You should receive a reset link right away.

Not receiving emails?

  • Double-check your email address. If you have different addresses for personal and work email, make sure you’re using the right one.
  • Check your Spam folder and talk to your IT team. If emails from Slack aren’t getting delivered to your inbox or Spam folder, or links in our emails are expiring, ask IT to allow no-reply@slack.com and feedback@slack.com.

2FA not working?

Review the troubleshooting steps in Set up two-factor authentication.

Note: You may need to ask a Workspace Owner or Workspace Admin to temporarily disable 2FA for your account so you can sign in.
