If you sign up for a new Typekit plan, you will be prompted to either sign in with your Adobe ID or to create a new Adobe ID. All Typekit accounts created after April 4th, 2012, must use an Adobe ID.
Typekit users who signed up before April 4th, 2012, may update their account to use an Adobe ID. Once this is done, you will use your Adobe ID to sign in to Typekit. Note that doing so is not required, unless you want to link your Typekit plan to a Creative Cloud subscription. You may continue to use your current typekit.com login if you prefer.
Sign into your account at typekit.com and go to the account settings page. If your account hasn’t been connected to an Adobe ID yet, you will see a banner at the top of the page; click the "Get Started” button to begin the process.
The next page explains what to expect upon updating your account. When you’re ready, click “Update your Typekit login to Adobe ID.”
If you already have an Adobe ID, you can sign in with that ID. If not, click “Create an Adobe ID,” and proceed through the required fields in the form. Note that you may create an Adobe ID with the same email you used for your Typekit login, or with a different email.
Once you’ve signed in with an existing Adobe ID or created a new one, you’ll see a confirmation page. On the left is the Typekit login you are replacing. On the right is the Adobe ID that will replace it. Make sure these are correct, and then click “update.”
You will now be signed in to your Typekit account with your Adobe ID. If you have any questions or run into any issues, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
