If you do not receive an email or your verification email has expired navigate to My Identities inside My Profile and click on the "Resend" option and you will receive a new verification email that will allow you to verify the email

Once the alias has been verified you will be able to login into SIMS ID with it alongside your SIMS ID account. The alias will also be added to a list of verified alias' for your SIMS ID account that you will be able to switch between when wish

Switching Your Alias'

How many login names can I have?

You can have a standard SIMS ID login - this is always active You can then also choose from Google or Office 365 usernames where SIMS ID is used to log into these services You can set multiple Alias usernames - only one can be active

You can disable the use of each username for login except the main SIMS ID login which is always active.

Only one custom alias can be active at any given time, so if you have multiple custom alias' all you need to do is click on that option and it will become your current active custom alias.

Deleting Alias
