How to keep Full Access to the updated National Geographic App
Are you an existing user of the National Geographic app? From Friday 15 March 2019 the revamped National Geographic app will be available within the App store and Google Play Store. To keep FULL ACCESS to premium content within the updated app, you’ll need to create a new National Geographic Account. Follow these simple steps to keep full access:
STEP 1 – CHECK YOUR OPTUS ELIGIBILITY
To begin the process you must authenticate your Optus eligibility and follow the prompts on the webpage.
Optus mobile customers will need to enter their mobile number. If you are eligible, you will be sent a four-digit verification code via SMS. (the process is different for mobile broadband customers – follow the prompts on the eligibility check webpage).
An option to enter the four-digit code will appear on the eligibility page. Enter the code and you will be directed to a new webpage to create your National Geographic Account.
STEP 2 – CREATE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ACCOUNT
Create a National Geographic Account to keep Full Access to the National Geographic App. You can use your preferred e-mail address or Facebook log in details to create an account.
STEP 3 – VERIFY YOUR NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC ACCOUNT
Once you have created your National Geographic account you’ll be sent a verification email. To verify your account, open the email and click ‘Confirm’ (make sure to check your junk/spam folder). You’ll be directed to a sign in page where you will be required to enter your log in details to complete the verification process.
If you have created a National Geographic Account via Facebook login you can skip ahead to Step 4 as you are not required to verify your account and will not receive a verification email.
STEP 4 – UPDATE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC APP
From 15 March 2019, the updated version of the app will be available. Simply head to the App Store or Google Play Store to update the app.
