What account can I use to set up my Portal?

This article applies to Portaland Portal TV

You need a Facebook account or a WhatsApp account to set up your Portal. Some features, including "Hey Portal", Facebook Watch, Facebook Gaming, Facebook Live and display settings aren't available when you set up your Portal with WhatsApp only or when a WhatsApp-only login exists on a shared device.

If you've set up your Portal with a Facebook account, you'll still be able to connect your WhatsApp account to your Portal.

Learn how to set up your Portal.
