Follow these steps to create your ID.iowa.gov account.

  • Go to https://id.iowa.gov/signin/register to begin

  • Enter your email address
    Choose an email address that you’ll always be able to access. Once your account is created, you can add an additional email address, such as a work email or alternate personal address, to access your account.

  • Create your ID.iowa.gov password.
    Passwords must be at least 12 characters
    and cannot contact part of your username, first name or last name. That’s it! There are no other restrictions. You can even use more than one word with spaces to get to 12 characters. Try using a phrase or a series of words that only you recognize.
    Your
    ID.iowa.gov password should be different from passwords you use for other accounts such as your bank account or email. Using the same password for many accounts makes identity theft easier.

  • Enter your first name

  • Enter your last name

  • Click the "Register" button

  • Check your email to finish signing in (Admin@ID.iowa.gov <no-reply@id.iowa.gov>)

  • Click "Activate Account" button

  • https://id.iowa.gov/app/UserHome will launch

Success!
