Sign In to the Cloud

Account and License Requirements

Access to the MathWorks® Cloud requires a MathWorks Account. For access to all the features of MATLAB® Mobile™, you must have a valid MATLAB license:

  • This license must be linked to your MathWorks Account.

  • Your license must be current on MathWorks Software Maintenance Service.

Without a license, you can still use MATLAB Mobile with limited functionality, as long as you have a MathWorks Account. For more information, visit Connect to the Cloud.

If you do not have a MathWorks Account, the application allows you to create one. If you have a license, you can link your license to the account. Alternatively, create an account at the MathWorks Web site,, and then follow these steps to link your license with your account:

  1. Go to MathWorks License Center. You may have to sign in to your MathWorks Account first.

  2. Click Link a License and then follow the instructions.

If you do not have a user ID for your account, the application prompts you to create one. The user ID becomes part of the identifiers for your output and session information.

On the cloud, you can run commands for MATLAB and all other MathWorks products that your license includes. For information about limitations that affect running commands, see Limitations (MATLAB Mobile for Android).

Connecting from Your Device

  1. Start MATLAB Mobile.

  2. Specify that you want to connect to the cloud:

    • Select Connect to MathWorks Cloud. Enter your account information and sign in.

    • To define a cloud connection, tap the Menu button or the menu and tap Settings. Then, tap MathWorks Account. Enter your account information and sign in.

Cloud Storage

The MathWorks Cloud provides cloud storage for MATLAB files, data, figures, and variables. Users receive up to 5 GB of storage on the cloud.

Unless you explicitly close or clear them, figures and variables that you create on the cloud persist after you exit the application, and are available the next time you connect. The best practice is to close figures and clear workspace variables that you no longer want.

Logging Out from Your Device

To log out and remove your account information from MATLAB Mobile, tap the Menu button or the menu and tap Settings. Then, tap your email address and tap Log Out.
