The Internet2 Guest Account is a service provided by Cirrus Identity. It enables people who do not have an InCommon-member organizational identity provider to access resources provided through Internet2 Identity Services.
The creation of the guest account is a separate process from the Internet2 Account Registration. Creating a guest account will redirect your browser to the Cirrus Identity Domain who is a trusted partner of Internet2.
Cirrus Identity is responsible for the guest account establishment, verification, and assurance.

- Register the Guest Account
The first time you try to use your Internet2 Guest account to login, you will be asked to register it.
This is step 4 on the Registration Guide. Follow along with the prompts (or guide) until this process is complete.
- Finish any outstanding Enrollments
If you were in the process of enrolling for access or an event, continue where you left off before creating the Guest Account.
