Learn more about your Cochlear™ Account


Your Cochlear Account is the personal account you use to access Cochlear services. It allows you to sign in to Cochlear’s online services using an email address and password. You need a Cochlear Account to access Cochlear services like the Cochlear Nucleus Smart App.

Creating a Cochlear Account allows Cochlear to provide you with the resources, services and support to connect and empower you on your hearing journey with your Nucleus 7 Sound Processor. Cochlear will also be able to keep you informed of any updates regarding iOS and the Nucleus Smart App.


In most countries, if you are over a specified age you can create your own Cochlear Account. If you are under the specified age, a parent or guardian will need to set up your Cochlear Account and provide consent. The age restriction varies depending on your country of residence. Please contact your local Cochlear office with any specific questions on this topic. For contact information visit cochlear.com/intl/contact/global-offices.


No, you cannot set up a Cochlear Account for someone over the specified age threshold.


If your child is under the specified age threshold and has set up a Cochlear Account, contact your local Cochlear office for advice and assistance, as parental consent is required for your child to have an account. For contact information visit cochlear.com/intl/contact/global-offices.


No, because it provides access to your personal information. Please ensure you keep your login details secure.


If you’ve purchased a Cochlear product from the online store, or have used a Cochlear online service in the past, you may already have a Cochlear Account. You may be able to use the same email address and password to log in to the Nucleus Smart App. If you want to check whether or not you have a Cochlear Account, please contact your local Cochlear customer service team for assistance.


If you do not already have a Cochlear Account (i.e. you do not already access other Cochlear online services with an email address and password) you can create one by selecting ‘Create new account’ from the Nucleus Smart App.

You will need to:

  1. Provide your name and an email address
  2. Create a unique password for your Cochlear Account.

After you submit your details you will be sent an email with a link to activate your Cochlear Account. If you do not receive an email, check your Spam or Junk folder. Once you click on the activation link, the Nucleus Smart App will open automatically and you will be able to login with your email address and password.


If you want your child to use Nucleus Smart App independently on their own device to control their Nucleus 7 Sound Processor, you can create a Cochlear Account for them. When you set up the account you will be providing consent for your child to have full access to all app features. You will also be providing consent for their data to be synchronised to the Cochlear Cloud if the Data Sync feature is enabled.


To set up an account for a child you will need:

  1. A compatible Apple device with the Nucleus Smart App installed
  2. An email address for your child (in addition to your own email address)
  3. Your own compatible Apple or Android device
  4. Your own Cochlear Account

It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete the process to set up a Cochlear Account for your child.


Before you can set up a Cochlear Account for your child, you will need to have set up your own Cochlear Account.
