For you to enjoy the service offered by the ooVoo application you must get the basics right. For a start, you need to have installed the ooVoo application on your device. Remember ooVoo has applications for iOS, Android, Microsoft Windows, Facebook, Mac OS X and Windows Phone among others. But for you to get the thrill of video chatting and messaging and join the over 100 million registered users you need to do a one-off sign up and login every time you want to use the app. So how do you sign up, ooVoo Login or retrieve your password? The process is simple but precise.
How to sign up for ooVoo?
Once you go to the ooVoo sign in page, ensure ‘ooVoo’ appears in the field. Click on ‘Get a new ooVoo account’. This operation will take you to a ‘Create a new ooVoo account’ window. This window has two slots that require your attention; the ID slot and the password slot.
Think of a suitable ID that you will be comfortable to use with this account. As much as possible, it is advisable that you don’t use an ID you have used elsewhere on the internet. Your new ID can contain upper and lower case letters as well as numbers; nothing prevents you from including dots, underlines, and dashes. However, bear in mind that your ID must start with either a number or a letter. You cannot include spaces on the ID.
Once you have created an ID the next bit is choosing a password and entering it in the ‘Password’ slot. Just like the ID, the password should not include any spaces. The password you choose can comprise of upper case and lower case numbers as well as punctuation marks, brackets and arithmetic symbols. To enhance the security of your ooVoo Login accounts try to make your password reasonably complicated. It is advisable to write down the password as you key it in. This will serve as a backup just in case you forget it before you move to the next step which h requires you to enter the same password in the “confirm password field”.
With the password and ID sorted out, enter your correct e-mail address in the E-mail space provided. This email is the one you will use to retrieve your password in case you forget it.
Of course, ooVoo comes with terms and conditions of use. Click on terms and conditions and familiarize yourself with them. Once done and you are satisfied, click on the ‘Yes I accept the terms of the ooVoo End User License Agreement’ option. This takes you to the final step of ‘Create an Account’. Once here just click on this option and a window will appear allowing you to add optional info. Now you have signed up.
How do you log in?
Well, this procedure depends on whether you are login in from a computer or from a smartphone. The good thing is that irrespective of what device you are using the Log in steps are easy to follow. Double click on the ooVoo Login icon on the computer screen to open the app. Then enter the ooVoo ID or your email address (the one you used to sign up) in the ‘Email/ooVoo’ field. Enter the password you created in the ‘Password’ slot and then click ‘Log in’. The procedure is largely the same if you are logging in from a mobile phone, the only difference is that now you have to touch or tap on the icon and log in slots on the screen of your phone.
What if you forget your password?
If this happens, no need to panic. Go to the ooVoo Login page and click on the ‘Forgot Password’ link. An ‘Enter your ID or email field will appear’. Enter any one of the two; either the password or the email address. If you use your email make sure it is the email you used to sign up for this account. ooVoo will send your password to that email address. Open your email account and go to your inbox, you will find the email containing your password. Retrieve it and proceed to Log into your ooVoo account.
