Client access

Clients can access Clio for Clients using either their web browser or the mobile app. Logging into Clio for Clients does not require a password. Instead, clients log in using their email address and an authentication link sent to their email.

When your firm sends an initial invitation to the client portal, your client will be prompted to log in using a one-time password that is valid for only one hour. When the link expires, your client will be prompted to request a new link.

Each time your firm shares a new document or sends a new message, your clients will be able to access the client portal using just their email address and a one-time password authentication link.
