What is Shaw ID?

Shaw ID is a single login for Shaw products and services like My Shaw, BlueCurve TV, Shaw Go WiFi and more. It consists of an email address username and password. Each Shaw account has one Primary Shaw ID and can invite up to four household members to create secondary Shaw IDs, providing additional household members their own logins. Only the Primary account holder can create a Primary Shaw ID.
