How to sign in to Kinfolk Community


In future, we're aiming to implement single sign-on, which means that when you're signed into the Kin app, you'll also be signed into the Kinfolk community when you navigate there from within the app. For now, you'll have to sign in to Kinfolk community separately.

You'll need to be signed in to:


  • Create a new community post, or comment on any existing community posts
  • Upvote or downvote any existing community posts.
 Desktop  iPhone  Android

If you're browsing the Kinfolk community on your desktop, you can sign in using any of the following methods:

Social sign in


  1. Select the sign in button top right.
