I'm still having trouble logging in. What should I do?

Some tips to help you log in to your account include:

  • Passwords are case sensitive
    • If your password was created as simple123, you won't be able to log in if you enter Simple 123 or Simple123
  • Remove extra spaces and double check the domain of your email address
    • If you aren't receiving an email to reset your password, make sure to enter your email address correctly by removing extra spaces or changing incorrect domains such as .com, .org, .edu
    • This email address should match the one associated with your SimplePractice account

I'm locked out of my account. How do I log back in?

For security reasons, we'll lock your account after 5 unsuccessful login attempts. When this happens, you’ll see this message on the login page:

When your account is locked, an email is automatically sent to the email address that's on file for your SimplePractice account. If you don't see this email in your inbox, check your spam and junk folders.

Click the link in the email to unlock your account. Then, you can either attempt to login again or reset your password.

Note: If you don't click the email link, your account will also automatically unlock after 10 minutes.


I have a Google Voice number. How come I'm not receiving my security code via text?

Google Voice does not support short SMS messages. If the phone number on file for your SimplePractice account is a Google Voice number, you may not receive text security codes from our system. Please try the Call me with Security Code option instead, or contact our team for additional support, so you can update your phone number on file. 


I forgot my password and don't have access to the verification phone number. How do I log back in?

If you're not able to reset your password because you need to change the phone number we use to verify your identity, please contact our team.
