Security questions

If you’re creating a new Shaw email address while you're at home and connected to Shaw Internet, you'll be prompted to provide your phone number as a security measure.


If you're away from home, you'll be asked to provide:

 

  • your Shaw Account Number
  • the phone number on your Shaw account
  • your postal code


We recommend having all of those things handy before you continue.

Email username rules

You can get creative with your username, but there are some necessary restrictions.

 

  • usernames must be at least 3 characters long
  • usernames must begin with a letter — not a number or symbol
  • you can't use these characters: / \ & ‘ “ ? | , +


If your username isn’t available, you’ll be asked to choose a different one.
