Enter BambooHR Login Information

You will then be prompted to enter the information for your BambooHR account:

  1. Enter your company's subdomain. The subdomain is the first part of your BambooHR Login URL. For example, if I normally go to when logging into BambooHR, I would only enter efficientoffice into this field.
  2. Enter the full email address that you use when logging into BambooHR.
  3. Enter your BambooHR password.
  4. Tap the "Log In" button.


Upon login, you will be prompted to opt in or out of time off request notifications.

Additional Settings

Within Settings, you can select various options to easily log into the Mobile App.

  1. Use Touch ID to Log In: Touch ID allows you to use your previously authenticated fingerprint. If you do not have Touch ID or Face ID, you will see an option to create a pin for login. 
  2. Rate BambooHR: Do you like the BambooHR App? Please tell us what you love about it!
  3. Send Feedback: Do you think something could be better in the app? We love to hear your feedback!

If you have Google Single Sign-On turned on in your account, please note that this will extend to the mobile app.

If you are logging into an older version of the mobile app, you may still see an option to log in with an email and password even if this option is turned off in your account. Once you enter your credentials, you will see an error message if your administrator has turned off the option to log in with an email and password instead of Google Single Sign-On. To resolve this error, you will need to update your BambooHR Mobile App to the latest version in the app store.
