My NCBI Login Transition

Change Login before June 1st, 2021

What’s happening?

NCBI is transitioning to federated account credentials. NCBI-managed credentials are the username and password you set at NCBI — these will be going away. Federated account credentials are those set through eRA Commons, Google, or a university or institutional point of access.
