After you successfully logged in to Mahara, you see your *dashboard*. This is your homepage where you can see the latest activity of you and other users on Mahara. You can customise the dashboard so that you always see the items that are most important to you.
Login
~~~~~~~~~~~
You always need a login to authenticate yourself and access your personal information, portfolio pages and groups that you belong to. You can log in on the Mahara homepage.

Login form
#. **Username**: Type your username in this field.
#. **Password**: Provide your password.
#. Click the *Login* button to access your account.
#. **BrowserID login**: If you log in via `BrowserID <https://browserid.org/>`_, please use this link instead of the login form.
#. **SSO login**: If you log in via your institution's SSO account, please use this link to be taken to the SSO login.
#. **Register**: If you do not have an account, and your institution allows self-registration for an account, use this link and follow the instructions on the next page.
#. **Lost username / password**: If you do not remember your username or password to your account, click this link to be taken to a page where you can request a new password.
.. note::
The "Lost username / password" link only works for internal accounts where you use the regular login form. If you log in via BrowserID, SSO or Moodle for example, you must retrieve your password directly from these services. If you do not know how to do that, please ask your administrator.

Only you can see your dashboard. Nobody else has access to it.
