BOINC Account Manager (or "BAM") is an account manager that assists you in creating and managing your BOINC project accounts and helps you with setting preferences, joining or creating teams, connecting your computers to projects, and many more.

Not all projects have full support for BAM yet. Check the supported project page to see what works, and what doesn't.

How to use BAM

New BOINC Users

If you are new to BOINC, you can start BOINC by creating a BAM account. Just enter your information on the registration page and after activating the account you can start with selecting the projects you want to support. The account information you use for BAM will be used to create accounts for you at your chosen projects.

Follow the steps below to setup BAM

Existing BOINC Users

If you are already using BOINC, the projects where you already have an account will be imported into BAM when you create a BAM account. These projects can now be managed from BAM (like setting preferences or resource shares).
