My CBI



I can't log into My CBI

To log into My CBI, you must already have an account and a password. If you have an account, you should’ve received an email with instructions on how to set a password. If you haven’t used this email to create a password or you’ve forgotten your password:

  • Go to https://www.cbi.org.uk/account/login/
  • Click ‘forgot password’
  • Enter your email and click ‘reset password’
  • This will trigger the password set up email. You have 60 minutes to use the email before it deactivates
  • If it takes longer than 60 minutes to set a password, then you can resend the email by following the same process again.

If you do not receive the password set up email:

  • Please check your spam folder
  • Try triggering the email again in case you misspelled your email address.

If you still do not receive the email, please contact help@cbi.org.uk.
