What are the differences between FPF accounts and profiles?

Learn more about the structure of FPF memberships.

Each FPF account requires a member’s name and email address.  The email address on the account is used to log in, along with a password.

An FPF account may have one or more profiles.  Each profile is linked to a physical address, and a specific Forum.

Most members have a single Neighbor profile at their home address.  Business, Nonprofit, and Government profiles are also available.  

Two profile types can be attached to the same account — as long as the member wishes to associate both profiles with the single email address on that account.
