MonkOS 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 MonkOS installation before proceeding. If you haven't installed MonkOS yet, see Getting Monk.


To sign up for a new MonkOS 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 MonkOS account. We recommend passwords longer than 12 characters.

Log In

While using MonkOS 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 MonkOS installation. See these first steps in context in the next section: MonkOS in 10 minutes.
