Monk Accounts & Authentication

You need an account in order to use Monk. Getting one is free, straightforward, and it shouldn't take more than a couple of seconds.

Register Using CLI#

You are going to need a working Monk installation before proceeding. If you haven't installed Monk yet, see Getting Monk.


To sign up for a new Monk account, run:

monk register

You will be asked for:

  • email address
  • new password
  • password confirmation

You will be asked to verify your email address before logging in. Check your email!


Choose a strong password to secure your Monk account. We recommend passwords longer than 12 characters.

Log In#

While using Monk tools, you will be asked to log in while performing various actions. In order to log in permanently, do the following:

monk login

You will be asked for:

  • the email address you used to register
  • the password you chose when registering

Log Out#

If your work with the CLI is finished you might choose to log out. Here is how:

monk logout

Forgotten Password?#

To reset your password, you can use the following command:

monk reset

If you've been following along, you now have a working Monk installation. See these first steps in context in the next section: Monk in 10 minutes.
