Tips and Tricks: Using the TapToTalk ID and Password

Every TapToTalk you create has a unique ID and password. In this post, we'll explain why that's so, where to find them, and how to use them.

TapToTalk is not just the name of our product. A TapToTalk is a collection of albums. Most of our users create this collection for a particular child. Regardless of what the collection means to you, this collection is unique in the TapToTalk system.

In order to identify your collection -- your TapToTalk -- from others, TapToTalk Designer assigns each TapToTalk a unique 10 digit ID number.

You also give the TapToTalk a password. We recommend that you use a different password from your TapToTalk Designer account.

We are often asked why there is a different ID and password for each TapToTalk. Why not just use the Designer password? The reason is so you can allow anyone to access your child’s albums on the Web App or the iPhone/iPad App without necessarily allowing them to change the content. Also, Pro and Agency users have more than one TapToTalk in their account, so each needs a different unique identifier and password.

The separate TapToTalk ID and Password makes the TapToTalk system more secure. For example, a professional can create a set of albums for a child, but they may have other TapToTalks for other children. They can tell the parent or the teacher at school the TapToTalk ID and Password to either log into the Web App or configure the TapToTalk app for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. The parent/teacher can then run the content only for the proper child.

If you aren’t sure what your TapToTalk ID is, just click on the TapToTalks link in the upper left hand corner of TapToTalk Designer. The ID is in parenthesis next to the TapToTalk’s name. The ID and password are also displayed every time you publish that TapToTalk.

The instructions for logging into the Web App or configuring the iPhone/iPad App with the 10 digit TapToTalk ID and password are found in their respective user’s guides in the online help of TapToTalk Designer. Unless you change the password, you only do this setup once.
