Accessing MinuteMe

The MinuteMe web app can be accessed via the Log in, TRY FOR FREE or Sign up links at https://minuteme.com or directly at https://my.minuteme.com and https://minuteme.app.

We provide 3 convenient options for you to sign up or sign in, and we recommend you choose the option depending on where your email account is hosted:

Tip: If you sign up using your email address, you can always use the Sign in with Microsoft or Sign in with Google options using the same email address at a later time and all your meetings will be linked.

We recommend using the Microsoft or Google options if possible for you because:

  • It means you don’t need to create a new password to access MinuteMe - you can use your existing password
  • It may mean you can search your contacts in your address book to easily invite them to meetings
  • You can take advantage of an active Microsoft or Google session in your browser or on your computer, to save you having to type in your password each time you sign in.
  • You can take advantage of any multi-factor authentication (MFA or 2FA) provided with your Microsoft or Google account
Microsoft nor Google will never ever give your account password to MinuteMe.

If you can’t sign in with the Microsoft or Google option, then you can create a MinuteMe account using your email address.

Using Sign up/in with Microsoft provides a simple and secure way to access MinuteMe. MinuteMe requests an incremental and dynamic consent which means Microsoft will ask you to approve access to specific information in your Microsoft account in order for us to provide you with the best experience, depending on the features you wish to use.

Note: On-premise Microsoft Exchange hosted systems are not supported for authentication or access to additional services such as tasks or calendar.
