Login assistance - Mobile and tablet devices

Here you will find a set of instructions to help you get logged into your account on fool.com with a mobile/ tablet device.

By logging into your account you will have access to the premium service(s) that you are subscribed to.

  1. Open a web browser app (i.e. Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.). In the web address bar (located near the top of your screen) type in: www.fool.com and tap the ‘Enter’ key. This will redirect you to The Motley Fool homepage.
  2. After your page loads, you will find three, gray horizontal lines in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. These three horizontal lines are directly to the left of a magnifying glass icon, and directly to the right of the words, ‘The Motley Fool’
    • If you see ‘WELCOME BACK’ in yellow letters on the screen, you are already logged in and may now access your premium services.
  3. Tap the three, gray horizontal lines. This will bring up a menu from the right side of the screen. The last option in this menu is ‘Login.’ Tap the ‘Login’ button to be redirected to the login page.
    • If the last option in this menu is ‘Logout,’ you are already logged into your Motley Fool account and may now access your premium services.
  4. By tapping the ‘Login’ button you will be redirected you to a page where you may then enter your ‘Email/ Username’ and ‘Password’ associated with your Motley Fool account.
  5. If you find that the ‘Email/ Username’ and ‘Password’ fields are prefilled, your web browser app may have saved your login information in the past.
    • The prefilled information may or may not be your correct ‘Email/ Username’ and ‘Password’. To ensure that this information is correct, you may delete the prefilled information and re-enter your ‘Email/ Username’ and ‘Password’.
      1. Depending on your web browser app, you may need to simply tap the ‘Email/ Username’ or ‘Password’ field to erase the prefilled information, OR you will need to delete the information by tapping into the field and pressing the ‘backspace’ button until the field is left blank.
  6. In the ‘Email/ Username’ field, type the email address associated with your Motley Fool account. In the ‘Password’ section, type the password you have already created.
    • If your ‘Email/ Username’ or ‘Password’ are denied, this means that one or the other is misspelled or your password is not the password associated with your Motley Fool account.
  7. After successfully logging in you will be redirected to The Motley Fool's homepage where you may then access your premium service(s).
