If you're interested in becoming a member of the IGO then you've come to the right place!  This website used to provide a form that would allow interested geocachers to instantly join the organization online.  Unfortunately that practice flooded the website with thousands of bogus logins from spammers and hackers every month.  Steps were taken to try and reduce the number of bogus logins, but even those measures were defeated over time. 

Consequently, if you are a geocacher and wish to join the ranks of the IGO we ask that you use this link to send us an email.  In the email please provide the following information:

  • Your email address.  This is REQUIRED and it will become the key to your account.  It must be unique among all IGO members.
  • Your new IGO username.  This is REQUIRED and will become your username with the IGO.  It must be unique among all IGO members.

Once your email is received we will try to process your request within a week or less.  When it is processed you should receive an email reply guiding you to login to the website with a temporary password that we will provide.  The reply will ask you to set a new, permanent password and provide some additional information that can help up keep in touch and provide member services.

Thanks you and take care.
