Beginning in the next few weeks, we'll be adding authentication back into the e-paper, which means users will be asked to log in when trying to read the e-paper online or through the e-paper apps available to download in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store as the “Pine and Lakes Echo Journal E-Paper.”

If you already have a digital membership, simply go to the Pineandlakes Echo Journal news site at on your computer, tablet or smartphone. On a desktop computer or tablet, click the “Login” button in the upper right menu. On your mobile device, tap the three horizontal lines in the upper left for the drop down menu. Then select “Login” from the options.

Then, fill in the email address and password associated with your account. Be sure to check the "Keep me logged in" box so you don't have to log in each time you read.
