Which projects? Can you login to the websites or is it just using the BOINC app that gives the errors?

Each project is its own independent entity, you have to register your account with them separately. Unless you use Science United, because then you use an anonymous account, that one won't have credit or anything associated with it.
You login for this website is only for this website.

ok sorry for the delay - i was not notified there was a response.
ok i login to this web site - so that is not connected to the app - got it.
so how do i setup a login for the app? the app says BAM and other methods - which is easier?
don't care about tracking or credit - just want the thing to be running if possible - as of now can't join any projects without logging in.
using android on all devices.
please tell me how to create a mobile login under user account manager science united - since that is apparently anonymous that i can use to compute with my extra machines which are running 24/7 anyway.
thanks

Science United is your problem, it takes over your machine and dictates which projects you’re allowed to run.

Science United is your problem, it takes over your machine and dictates which projects you’re allowed to run.
And - by the way it's been created - actively prevents you from logging in to the message board system of any of the projects your computers do useful work for. Computers connected to a project by Science United appear on their systems as belonging to Science United - and none of us is allowed to know the password used by Science United in setting them up.
