Then watch for an email from "LifeCubby" containing a link to your account as well as your password. Your username will be your email address, and your password will be assigned, but you can change it. Look for LifeCubby Family App in Google play or Apple App Store. You can also access your account online at the LifeCubby website http://www.lifecubby.me.
