Sign-on with Office 365

Single sign-on is the easiest way to log in to Typing Pal, but you first must have an Office 365 account.

Start by linking your Office 365 and Typing Pal accounts. The linking is done from the Login page or from your Settings.

Once the two accounts are linked, simply click or tap the link Log in with Office 365 and you’re done!

You can unlink the two accounts at any time.
