Accounts

Account types

Quantum Inspire offers three different types of accounts:

  • Anonymous account
  • Basic account
  • Advanced account

Anonymous users can try out the editor without registration, but have no option to save projects or results or to access real hardware. Registration is needed for a basic (and advanced) account.

Note for registration: When your password does not conform to the requirements it is not accepted. Sometimes this happens silently (you don't get feedback that it failed or why). Please make sure you follow the following password requirements:

  • Should not be similar to your email address (or parts thereof)
  • At least 8 characters long
  • Cannot be too common (things like ‘secret’ are not allowed)
  • Cannot be just number
