1. Your MyYoast account

I’m a new customer

If you don’t have a MyYoast account yet, we’ll automatically create one the moment you make your first purchase on yoast.com, or when you subscribe to our newsletter. In both cases, the email address used is the username for your account.
To activate your account, please set a password by following these steps.

If you don’t want to wait until your first purchase, you can also manually create your MyYoast account on the signup page.

I’m a returning customer

If you ever bought on yoast.com, recently subscribed to our newsletter or manually created a MyYoast account, you may still have to activate your account, please set a password by following these steps.

Once your account is activated, you can log in by following these steps.

2. Finding and installing your products

Once you have logged in, click on Downloads in the menu to find the plugins and ebooks you bought.
