British Gas Login: Access your Online Account Fast!
Customers of British Gas sign in to their energy accounts every day to manage their bill payments, submit meter readings and a whole lot more. If you’re new to the British Gas login process, we’re here to take you through it step by step. Read on to find out how to make the most of the British Gas My Account online service.
British Gas Login: My Account
British Gas My Account is the name for the online gateway to the collection of services offered by British Gas to domestic energy customers. Once you sign up for an online account with British Gas (via the steps below), you will automatically stop receiving your bills through the post. Instead, you will have paperless billing, which means you’ll receive an email when your bills become available online.
To view your bills, log in to your British Gas account following the steps below. There is a whole host of essential tools within My Account to help you organise your household’s energy needs. Here is a snapshot of what you can do once logged in to your online account:
|Submit meter readings to avoid receiving estimated bills||View and pay your energy bills||See exactly how much energy you’re using|
|Request a smart meter||Check your current tariff is the best one for you||Learn ways to make your household more energy efficient|
|Put in final meter readings when you move house and enter base meter readings for your new home||Adjust your direct debits||View comparisons between your energy usage and other customers|
If you're a British Gas prepayment and you have a smart meter, you will be able to top up your meter via your online account. If you don't have an online account, you will still be able to top up online as a guest user.
How do I log in to My Account?
Need help finding the British Gas login page? You can start by going to the British Gas homepage. In the top right hand corner you will see ‘My Account’. Click on the text to be taken directly to the My Account homepage.
From here you click the green ‘Access your account’ button. This will take you to the British Gas login page.
Customers who already have an online account need to enter their email address and click ‘Next’.
You will then be asked to enter your password and that’s it - you’re in!
If you're logging in to My Account for the first time, you will be asked to submit the following details in order to complete the set-up process.
- Personal details: This includes you name, title, address and postcode. You can also include your phone number if you want to.
- Your customer reference number: This could also pertain to you HomeCare number or sales order number (if you have purchased a British Gas product). The correct reference number will be included in any emails or letters you have received from British Gas.
- Account Password: You will need to create a password. Choose something easy to remember but difficult for other people to guess, such as three seemingly random words representing things that are important to you (e.g. runbeachtoast - if you enjoying running along the beach before you have toast for breakfast. Just an idea!)
The next time you go to the British Gas login page, you will be able to enter your email address and password to get instant access to all your British Gas My Account details.

Why can I not access my British Gas account?
The British Gas login process is simple, but that doesn’t mean that you will never face problems when trying to sign in to your online account. Below, we discuss the most likely login problems and how to fix them.
Forgotten your email address?
In the case that you have forgotten the email address associated with your British Gas online account, you will need to contact the energy supplier. You can either phone British Gas on 0333 202 9802 or access the British Gas live chat via its homepage.

Forgotten your password?
If you’ve forgotten your British Gas login password, you will need to request a link to reset your password. You can do so on the British Gas login page by entering your email address, just as you would if you knew your password. Then, click on the option that says I forgot my password.
Next, go to your email inbox and open the most recent email from British Gas. Be sure to check your spam folder if you still haven’t received the email within a few minutes. Once opened, click on the link to change your password.
Do I need a British Gas login?
Although British Gas customers are encouraged to set up an online account to be able to self-manage their energy bills and usage, you can still do some of those things without an account.
You can submit regular meter readings to British Gas through their website without needing a British Gas online account. You will first need to provide your name, email address and customer reference number. Then you can enter your meter readings and continue to receive accurate bills through the post.
If you’ve just moved house and your new property is supplied by British Gas, you can submit an opening meter reading through the British Gas website. You’ll need your new address, fuel type (gas, electricity, or both) and the meter readings.
Customers who would simply rather speak to a real person to deal with their British Gas bills and other queries can certainly do so. There are numerous contact numbers depending on the topic of your query - see our guide to how to contact British Gas to help you find the right number.
Customers transferred from Beam Energy, CitizEN Energy, Ebico, Fosse Energy, Great North Energy, The Leccy, RAM Energy, Southend Energy, White Rose Energy and Your Energy Sussex will need to register for an online account with British Gas, their new supplier.
