Have no idea how to log back into BeReal? We've got you covered!
BeReal is a refreshing break from the highly curated world of social media, where perfection is often prioritized over reality. However, like any app, it's possible to run into issues with logging in, especially on a new phone.
So, in this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to log back into BeReal, so you can continue to share your authentic self with the world.
How to log back into BeReal
If you are reading this, the chances are you have already tried to log back into BeReal, but got confused when they asked you to provide or confirm all your personal details such as name, date of birth and phone number.
You might have thought you were creating a new account, but that's not the case. The normal process of logging back into an app typically involves entering the phone number associated with the account and verifying your identity by inputting the password or the OTP sent to the linked phone number.
But in the case of BeReal, you have to enter or confirm your name, date of birth and phone number every time you log back into BeReal, which is a stupid and inefficient way of doing things. We hope the devs will change this soon.
For now, here are the steps you need to take to log back into BeReal:
- Launch the BeReal app on your new phone. You will be given an overview of how the app basically works. You already know that, so tap Skip on the top right.
- Then you will be asked to confirm your name, date of birth and phone number. Double-check the info and hit Continue to proceed.
- You’ll receive a code on the phone number that is linked to your account. Enter that code into the BeReal app to verify your account, and you will be in.
Once you are in, you will be asked to post a BeReal. So, be real and take an authentic picture before the timer runs out. Maybe you can be a little creative this time and take two front pictures (selfies) instead of a selfie and a rear cam pic.
In case you didn't get a decent picture on the first try, you can always retake your BeReal post. But keep in mind that your friends will be able to see retakes (retake count), so don't take an embarrassing amount of BeReal retakes.
How to log into BeReal without a phone number
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it is impossible to log into BeReal without a phone number.
BeReal, like many apps, uses a phone number as a unique identifier for user accounts. This is often done for security and verification purposes, as phone numbers are generally considered to be more difficult to fake or duplicate compared to other forms of personal information.
So if you've lost access to your phone number, there is no way to log back into your BeReal account. In that situation, the only thing you can do is message BeReal at email@example.com to see if they can assist you with account recovery options.
