I do not have Google, Facebook or Twitter account. I do not use social media. But I want join Medium. I have a non-Google email id. How can I join Medium? I am not seeing any option to create account using email id. Is there any way to join Medium directly using email id, without having any social media? enter image description here


It's a bit deceptive the way they've laid it out on the page.

Go to the "Sign In" link under the two options. Click "Sign in with Email," and if you enter your email address, they will send you an email with a link.

You don't have to have had an account already to do so.

  • @y3sh Yeah, it's a "magic" link that includes a reference to a valid token somewhere on their system. It's by design. – jonsca Aug 14 at 20:39
