Signing in to your BBC Account

Updated: 6 March 2023

How long will I be signed in for?

You’ll normally be signed in for two years, unless you sign out, delete your cookies or delete your app. You can find out more about cookies here.

After two years we’ll ask you to sign in again. Oh, and you can sign in with different accounts on the same device.

Deleting inactive accounts

From time to time, we delete BBC accounts that haven’t been used for over a year.

You may have received an email saying that we will delete your account after 13 March 2023. To keep it active, you can sign in directly rather than click the link on the email.
