    Default Re: login

    You'll see both in and on used. You will see them written as one word, though this is often when they are used as a noun. It is more common to write log in or log on. I would say log in to or log on to, though into/onto are also fine. Some use log on for entering a computer system and log in for doing something when on the computer like entering this forum.
