Sign in issues when you use your Google account

You may be trying to sign in with a different Google account, one that isn't associated with your Smartsheet account. 

To fix this, sign out of all of your Google accounts across all applications in your browser (see this Google Support article for more information on signing out), then sign back in with the Google account you're using with Smartsheet.

Sign in issues when you use your Apple account

In most cases, issues logging in with an Apple account occur when you choose the Hide My Email option when you log in. To log in to your existing Smartsheet account, you’ll need to choose Share My Email instead of Hide My Email when signing in with Apple ID. Alternatively, use a different authentication option (such as Email and Password).

For additional information about logging in with an Apple ID, see Sign in with Apple: Frequently Asked Questions.
