Tip of the Week: Voki activation emails

Tip of the Week: Voki activation emails

Are you not receiving your activation emails after you signed up for your Voki account? Activation emails are sent immediately after you signed up for an account. Make sure that “notifications@voki.com” is in your safe senders list. This will ensure that you receive the email notification you need.

So if you’re still not receiving your activation emails, here’s what you can do:

  1. Activation emails may be stuck in your junk/spam box. Double check your junk/spam box to see if your activation email is there.
  2. If you are using your school email, your school filter may have blocked your activation email from arriving. So talk to your IT department about allowing Voki emails to go through.

Have any questions, comments, or feedback? Email them to feedback@voki.com!

Until next time,
