Why am I prompted about signing into different accounts?

  • UF has two main Zoom accounts: UFL and UFLPHI. Your account can be a member of only one of those accounts. If you're seeing this message you're attempting to login to the account you are not a member of. Unless you are intentionally trying to change accounts you should select 'Sign into Your Current Account'.
  • Note that your account may be automatically assigned to UFLPHI based on your university affiliations. If this applies to you and your account was originally in the UFL account, you will be prompted to switch accounts and you must select 'Switch to the New Account'. You will continue to see this prompt until you do. Keep in mind that users cannot switch-out of UFLPHI when they're automatically assigned.
  • The switch account process triggers an email to your contact email address to confirm the change.
