Why do I need an account

Last Updated: Dec 23, 2016 04:23PM CST
An account is not required to read the Bible via the app or the website; however, a number of additional features do require an account. We believe that through technology we can help make this the most Bible engaged generation in history. Our passion is for people to get engaged with God's Word. 

There are many ways that we strive to do this:
  • Include many Bible translations and languages, knowing that each translation and language might speak to a person and reveal God's glory in a different way.
  • Provide the ability to remember and quickly access scripture through bookmarks and highlights.
  • Use reading plans to encourage and foster a daily relationship with God by having consistent time in His Word.
  •  Make it easy to share scripture with  friends and family in your own community to help encourage them or draw them closer to God.
In order to keep track of this information and have it accessible from everywhere (say you switch phones or want to access your reading plan from a computer or tablet instead of your phone) an account is required.  This helps ensure that wherever you are able to sign in to YouVersion, whether it be via your phone, tablet, or a computer, you'll have access to your plans, bookmarks, etc. 

Use only one account and sign in to all your devices with this account. Your data will then sync across multiple platforms.

An account is required for highlights, bookmarks, notes, reading plans, downloading offline translations, and friend features. No account is required to read the Bible. You'll always be able to download the app or go to the website and read God's Word. That won't change.
