What does ‘local account’ mean?

Learning Toolbox allows you to sign up to an account in a number of ways, including with your social media accounts such as Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Microsoft.

So what is a local account? If you don’t want to use your social media accounts, the traditional way is to use an email address and password when you sign up to Learning Toolbox. That is what is meant by ‘local account’.

Once you have created your account in the traditional way, with email and password, you can still sign in with any of your social media accounts as long as they have the same email address than the one you use to create your local account.
