Account Management

  • I forgot my password.

    No problem! You can reset your password anytime you need to.

  • I need to change my email address.

    You can change your email address in your account settings (you must be logged in).

  • What's the difference between creating an account and subscribing?

    Creating an account doesn’t cost anything, and it provides access to our free newsletters and other website features. Subscribers to MIT Technology Review will receive the print and/or digital copy of the magazine six times per year, and will have unlimited access to all the stories on, among many other benefits.


  • How do I activate my account on the website?

    If you are a current subscriber, activate your online account for complete access to the website.

  • How do I report a bug or a broken link?

    Please report bugs or other website issues using the form on this page—and thanks for asking.

  • Your site says I’m using incognito mode but I’m not.

    Readers who haven’t yet decided to subscribe are allowed three free articles per month. We block those reading in incognito mode (also known as private browsing) because it prevents us from counting how many stories they’ve read. If you’re receiving a message that you’re using incognito mode but you aren’t, it likely means you’re using something that mimics incognito mode—a browser setting that deletes all history and cookies, for example. If that doesn’t explain what you’re experiencing, please contact us.

  • What's the difference between what's online and what's in the magazine?

    We publish dozens of stories online every week; only some of them go in the print magazine, which we publish six times a year.



  • I would like to advertise on your website.

    That’s excellent news! Review our media kit to learn about the advertising opportunities we have to offer.
