Impossible to sign up for digital access


I tried signing up for the digital access - enter my account number and then it says “thank you for creating a password - you can sign in with that” - I never created a password. When I click on “forgot my password” and enter my email address , it says “enter a valid email” even though it’s correct. They last updated their app over a year ago, they do not keep up with bug fixes and deserve to get all the negative reviews they are getting. What a disappointment!

L❤️VE It!


I love the Nat Geo Kids app! I'm a print AND digital subscriber. The app could use some more features, though. There should be a highlighter, and the mazes and Fun Stuff should be interactive. I'm still rating 5 star because Nat Geo is awesome!

Can't sign in


Having the same issue as other users. The app recognizes the account number and says to sign in using your recently created password, only it never prompted you to create a password. The it doesn't recognize the email address as valid when you try to create a new password.
