How to join and become a Lookout with Lookout Guardians... Print
  1. Go to
  2. Click on JOIN NOW (in the upper right of the home page screen).
  3. Once you are at the Welcome New Member page you can create a Member Name. Your Member Name will be how and other Lookout Guardians members will know you. It is your Lookout Guardians online identity. Create a Member Name you like: Prettypaws, Tracker, Scout, Betty, Tigerlilly, David are all examples of Member Names. You can be playful, creative, fun or simple and to the point... whatever works for you as long as it is unique within Lookout Guardians. Member Names do need to be more than 4 characters long. See discussion under Member Name.
  4. Write down your new Lookout Guardians Member Name: ______________________________________________________
  5. Check the box for "I would like to be a Lookout." (Being a Lookout is optional for our members, but we would be most grateful if you could volunteer as a Lookout. And besides, "How to become a Lookout" is in the title of this how-to section.)
  6. Complete the Welcome New Member form with as much information as you want. Member Name, Email, Password and Zip Code are necessary to create the account. Write your Password down and keep it private: ________________________________
  7. When you are satisfied with your membership form (you will be able to edit it later) click on Join Now at the bottom of the page.
  8. At this point, Lookout Guardians will send you an email to verify your email address and to verify that you intended to set up an account with us.
  9. This step helps prevent spammers. Go to your email account and open the email from Lookout Guardians. Read the email and click on the URL (really long line of words and characters, usually underlined; it is the address for Lookout Guardians verification process). The verification process confirms your membership. If nothing happens when you click on the URL, you may have to copy the URL and then paste it into your browser's address bar.
  10. When step nine has completed successfully, you will be returned to the Lookout Guardians home page so you can login. Once you reach this point, you will never have to perform steps 1 - 9 again.
  11. Now, click on the LOGIN (upper right part of the home page). The LOGIN pop-up box will appear. Here you can enter your Member Name and Password, then click on the LOGIN box in the lower right of the pop-up box. This is how you will enter from now on. Explore the website and tell your friends.
