How do I create an account/log in?
To create a MAGICapp account, you can use your email OR one of our compatible institution logins (Cochrane ID, Google, or WHO).
1. Create an account
You can register for a free MAGICapp account in order to work within the app. To start, select "Create an account" on the home page.
You will be taken to a sign up page, where you can use any email to create a MAGICapp account. You can also log in using a third party account, via Cochrane, WHO, or Google. You can use your existing account information from those accounts to log into MAGICapp.
Please note that you need to create a highly secure password - once you fulfill each of the criteria below, a green check mark will appear next to it. Note: If the Register button isn't working for you, it might be that you haven't created a password that fulfills all the criteria, or that your passwords don't match.
Once you enter your information and click register, MAGICapp will ask you to verify your email.
You will get en email asking you to click the verification link.
From the link you will be taken back to MAGICapp and asked to proceed.
Finally you will be verified, and you can use MAGICapp.
2. Log in
You can log in with your email and password on the left side, or using your third party account login (Cochrane, WHO, or Google) on the right side.
