    Hi Insiders, we’ve an important update regarding your Insider account access.

    TLDR: You will soon need Razer ID to log in to Razer Insider.

    As we work towards developing new features across our suite of Razer software (Razer Cortex, Razer zVault and more), we will be making a couple of changes to Razer Insider. This allows a more consistent experience and a convenient one-account access to all other Razer services.

    What is affected:

    • All Razer Insider users with Razer ID:
      • All Razer Insiders will have their Insider nicknames changed to reflect their RazerID.
      • In the off-chance that you encounter a situation with a duplicate username (ownership on a first-come, first-served basis), you may need to change your RazerID here: https://razer-id.razerzone.com
      • Functionally, everything remains the same
    • All Razer Insider users without Razer ID:
    • New Users:
      • Effective next week, new users will not be able to create a new Razer Insider account with just their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
      • Guests may continue to read posts on Insider.
    Besides keeping things seamless with single account access to Razer Synapse, Razer Cortex or Razer zVault, having Razer ID on Insider allows you to access perks like Razer zSilver rewards and exclusive giveaways.

    Happy to answer any questions with regards to these changes. If you have any issues, do feel free to reach out to our official staff members on Razer Insider!

    So how do new users create accounts for Insider. Does creating a new Insider ID using an email address still work?

    Well I reckon it'll be as simple as making an ID and password, once and for all services. And email will just be there for verification and password recovery and such.

    Yeah but the post implied that you cant make a new account with your facebook or twitter account, so I was wondering if they would now only have email as a way of making a new account.

    Yes. It will affect users without Razer IDs.

    No. They will have to first sign up for RazerID and then login to Insider thereafter.

    That is correct you will not be affect at all with this change :)

    So, my nickname is ViperishGazelem but the info I use to sign in is my email address. I'm fairly certain I have had a RazerID since before joining Insider. So, how will I know if/what I need to change?
