We at Illumineto take security seriously and want to make the experience of using Sparklet and/or Spark a fun and easy experience. Therefore, we require all users to verify their email address to insure that they are a) who they say they are and b) that teams are built with the appropriate individuals.
There are two ways to verify your email.
1) When you first sign in, you will see a pop-up in Sparklet asking for a Verification Code that has been emailed to you. That email can be found in your inbox (or spam/other folder). Type in that code into the Sparklet pop-up and you will be good to go.
2) You can also validate your email through your web browser. By clicking on the "Click here to validate" button, you will open your browser (or new browser tab) which will then verify your email address. Go back to Sparklet and you will be good to go.
