This question already has an answer here:

I went to sign up for Ubuntu One and during the sign up process, I had to wait for the authentication code before I could proceed. I thought this was an instant process and it took a while for the email to come. So I exited the program and now I cant find where to enter in the authentication code at or how to bring it back up. Any help would be appreciated, Thank you.

If you closed the desktop client before receiving the email verification token, you might be able to complete the validation via the web.

In the email, there should be a unique token string that I will refer to as $TOKEN here. Open your web browser and point it at:


Follow the prompts and it should validate your account. Once that is done, try logging in with the desktop client again and say you have an existing account.
