Account Security and Verification

To ensure only authorized persons can access your Blink devices and media clips, every account email address must be verified.

If your account was created with an email address that does not exist, or that you no longer have access to, please log into the Blink app and change the account email address by following the instructions here.

If you have forgotten your password, use the "Forgot Password" link on the home page of the Blink app.

Blink policy is to verify every account's primary email address, without exception.

Other security features we employ for your protection include:

  • Enforcement of strong passwords.
  • Multiple factor security login. Learn more here.
  • Notifications of password change, email address change, or new device login.
  • Deletion alerts for camera, sync module, system, or account.
  • You control account details access for support agents. Learn more here.


What is a verified email and why do we need it?

  • We consider an account email address verified when there is a positive action from the recipient. In this case, we send you a link by email. Clicking on that link lets us know that the email address functions and we can use it for security messages. 
  • We require verified email addresses for every Blink account to enhance product security and ensure you receive Blink information.


Only the most recent verification email link is valid.

If a verification email is not received:

  1. Check your spam/junk folder
  2. Search all folders in case your email provider categorized it for you.
  3. Add no-reply@blinkforhome.com as a trusted sender in your email account.
  4. Double check that the email address entered in the Blink app is valid.
  5. Ensure your email address was input correctly and update if needed.
  6. Contact Customer Support

Only one email address at a time can be used with a Blink account; however, if you need to modify the current email of your account, you can do this in the Blink app.

You will then be taken to the main Welcome screen where you can login with your changed email address.
