# Signing in to CDF and Cognite applications

To sign in to Cognite Data Fusion (CDF) and other Cognite applications, you need to provide these credentials:


  • Company ID: The Cognite ID for your company/organization.

  • Email account: Your organizational email address, for example, yourname@yourcompany.com.

  • Password: The password for your organizational email address.

  • Project cluster: Only applies to some organizations.

If you don't know what values to enter in one or more of these fields, contact your internal help desk or the CDF admin for help. The CDF admin is often the person who gave you the link to sign in to CDF or the Cognite application. If you can't find out who the CDF admin is in your organization, contact support@cognite.com.
