Create an account

  1. To create an Aleph account, go to and click on Sign In in the upper right-hand corner.

  2. You will be redirected to the OCCRP Secure Sign-in page. Once there, click on New user? Register.

  3. Aleph will ask you for an e-mail address and a password, among other information. Subsequently, you will receive an e-mail confirming that your account has been created. Click on the link received to complete the e-mail verification process.

  4. Now, try logging in to your new account with the e-mail and password you chose. For security reasons, Aleph requires you to have an authentication application installed, which works as a two-step verification to log in to the account. We recommend using the free Google Authenticator application, which can be downloaded directly from your device’s app store.

  3. On a new screen, Aleph will ask you to enter your e-mail address (the e-mail address you used to register on the platform).

  4. You will then receive an e-mail titled Link to reset credentials. When you click on it, a new screen will open asking you to scan a code with the app you used when you created your user (e.g. Google Authenticator). Then enter the code provided by the app (One-time code field) and finally define a name for the phone you are using (Device name field). You can put any name (please remember it), that’s all!
