Sign in to OneDrive in iOS

Sign in to OneDrive in iOS

Use the Microsoft OneDrive app on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch device to work with your OneDrive for work or school accounts as well as your OneDrive for home account.

Upload, work with, and move files the same way in OneDrive for work or school in the iOS app as you do with your OneDrive for home. To learn more, see Upload files or photos to OneDrive in iOS.

Sign in

To add a personal account, enter your Microsoft account on the sign-in page. To add a OneDrive for work or school account, enter the email address you use for your company, school, or other organization.

Notes: 

  • If you have a problem signing in with your work or school account, try signing in at OneDrive.com or contact your IT department.

  • To change or reset your OneDrive password, sign in to your account online at account.microsoft.com/security.

You can have both a personal account and OneDrive for work or school accounts.

Add a OneDrive for work or school account

You can add a OneDrive for work or school account to the OneDrive app for iOS, if your organization uses OneDrive in Microsoft 365.

  1. Open the OneDrive app and tap the Me icon Person icon in OneDrive app for iOS in the upper left of the screen.

  2. Tap Add account.

  3. On the sign-in screen, enter the email address and password you use for your company, school, or other organization.

    When your organization uses SharePoint 2013, SharePoint Server 2016, or SharePoint Server 2019, the sign-in process is different from Microsoft 365. On the sign in screen, tap Have a SharePoint Server URL? Then enter the web address of your SharePoint server to continue the sign-in process. The web address, also known as a URL, may look like http://portal.

Notes: 

  • For you to sign in to OneDrive for work or school, your organization needs to have a qualifying SharePoint in Microsoft 365 or Microsoft 365 business subscription plan, or your organization needs to have its own SharePoint Server deployment.

  • You cannot sign in with multiple work or school account from the same organization.

If you have a problem signing in with your work or school account account, try signing in at https://portal.office.com/onedrive or contact your organization's IT department.
