Why we’re asking you to sign in

You'll need to sign in to your BBC account to use parts of the BBC online, including BBC iPlayer, BBC Sounds and BBC Sport.

Signing in unlocks a BBC that’s personalised to you. And as a public service, it allows us to check we’re making something for everyone.

How we keep your data safe

Keeping your information safe and secure is our top priority. We’ll always make it clear what we’re doing with your details and data.

What are you doing with my data?

Giving you more of what you love

Sign in and we can help you discover more things you’ll love. For instance, if you watch lots of science shows, we might tell you about a new series from Brian Cox.

What’s so great about signing in?

You’re in charge

If you’d rather we didn’t make the BBC more personal to you, you can always opt out. This means you won’t be able to do things like:

  • Get personalised newsletters and recommendations about things we think you’ll like
  • Pick up where you left off with programmes you’re watching.

Keeping kids safe

Once a child has registered, they’ll need permission from a parent or guardian before they can use certain features.

How do I know BBC accounts are safe for my children?

Will you share my data with TV Licensing?

We share some of your personal data with TV Licensing to check if you are using BBC iPlayer and to keep their database up to date.
