Registering From Your Phone:
You can register either by clicking on the profile icon (looks like a person’s outline) or by clicking on the ‘hamburger’ menu icon in the top right and choosing “Login/Register” from the menu. See below:
Registering From Your Computer or Tablet:
Even more options! The hamburger menu from the phone view above disappears and instead the menu is laid out along the top of the page, to the right of the Anikio logo. Just choose Login/Register from that menu or, again, from the profile/login/register button in the top right of the header bar.
Once you’ve clicked on the Register link, you will see a screen similar to the below:
We’ve tried to make registering as easy as possible. All you have to do is use an account you already have with one of the following email/social media sites, shown with icons from left to right in the screenshot above: Facebook; Gmail/Google; Yahoo!; Windows Live
This way, you never have to worry about remembering another password, and we can attach your email directly to your account without you having to type it out. This email is what will be used for communicating with other members of Anikio (landlords or tenants) so it’s important that you monitor the email address you use to sign up, especially for Facebook users. We don’t post on any of your accounts, grab your list of friends, or anything like that, we just want to make signing up easy. The best part is, if you log in later on your phone, computer, tablet, or at work, all you have to do is use that same social login account and you’re in!
After you’ve selected your preferred login method, you’ll be directed to that site and asked to authorize letting Anikio use that account to also log you in to our site. If you’re not logged in to your Facebook, or if you have multiple Google emails, etc, you may also be asked to log in to that service. Then authorize the connection from your other account to an Anikio account and you’re done.
I Don’t Have Any Of These Accounts/Don’t Want to Link an Account
Well, that’s a let down! We wanted to make life easier but in your case we may have made it more difficult. It is, of course, easy to create a Gmail, Yahoo!, or other account and link it, but we are also happy to manually create an account for you. Just visit our Contact page and send us your information in the Feedback box and we’ll help you out.
Landlord or Tenant?
The final question you’ll be asked is if you wish to register as a Landlord or Tenant. Why do we differentiate? As much as possible, we try to show content that is relevant to one group or the other and not show content that isn’t applicable. There are no super powers or special privileges for either, except that only landlords can list property. If you are in the situation where you are currently renting from someone but also have rental property (in other words, you’re both tenant AND landlord) then select landlord so you can still list property.
