Sign up for a new account

Issue Solution
 I cannot sign up with the error: "This email is already in use".  There's an account already created with this email address. Use Forgot password link on My Account's login page to restore access to the account.

 I get an error message:

"You're not recommended to use this password because it's widely used and cannot reliably protect your account."

 The password you want to use is not secure. Please specify a more complex password to minimize the chances of hacking your account.

 I need to create a business account for my company, but I don't find such an option.

 Business accounts are created from Personal accounts when registering a Business product license. For details, see KB123518

 I get an error message: "This email address was previously deleted and cannot be reused for at least {n} days while we`re making sure that all data is completely removed from all Parallels services."

 Your email address was already used as a Parallels account and then deleted. Please wait a corresponding number of days to create a new account with the same email address as stated in the error message.

Single Sign-On issues

Issue Solution

I’m an admin of a business account of my company/organization registered with Parallels, and I want to log in to the business account using the Single Sign-On procedure.

Read for more details about configuring Single Sign-On integration with Parallels My Account.

I’m an end-user of the Parallels Desktop for Mac Business Edition, and I want to activate the Parallels Desktop on my computer via Single Sign-On.

 As the end-user of the Parallels Desktop for Mac, you don’t need to log in to the Parallels My Account ( using the web browser to activate the product.

Use the Single Sign-On button inside the product instead. If you encounter problems using SSO inside the product, ask your product (license) admin for assistance.
