Troubleshoot issues with signing in

If you’re having problems signing in to Slack on any of your devices, here are some ways to troubleshoot.

You forgot your password

Use our password-free sign in to request a sign in code. With the code, you will be automatically signed in to any workspaces associated with your email address. You can also choose to reset your password by signing in manually. Enter your workspace URL, and select Get help signing in.

You're not receiving emails

  • 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.

You didn't receive the 2FA code

Review the troubleshooting steps in Set up two-factor authentication (2FA).

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