Railway Accounts are how a user interacts with the Railway platform.

Accounts currently are only allowed to be linked to one email and one GitHub account.

Users are only allowed one account per person, if caught multi-accounting, we do not hesitate to ban.

Account Actions

After successful confirmation, Railway deletes all account information, project data, and removes your account from all email lists. We aim to be compliant with EU GDPR’s data removal provisions.

Account Security

Railway is committed to you and your project's security. As such, we provide a variety of methods to help you keep your piece of mind.

Enabling 2FA

You can enable Two-Factor Authentication under the Account Security page. Most TOTP applications are supported.

After scanning the provided QR code and entering the code for the initial pairing of the application, 2FA will require additional verification for login and destructive account and project actions.

Account Sessions

You can see all the places you are logged in on the account security page. This includes all browser and CLI sessions that have logged in since today. Revoking a session will immediately log that device out.


Screenshot of Referrals Page

Every account has an editable referral link. You can copy and share your personal referral link with your friends/enemies as you see fit.

For every referral who incurs more than $10 worth of usage and pays their first bill, we credit $5 to your account.

You can see your referral invite statuses by navigating to the account page to:


Every Account gets $5 of included credit per month. No credit card required.

Users who upgrade to the Developer plan get $10's worth of credit each month and are billed for any usage above $10.

Accounts are still billed for the usage of credit used by the deleted projects.

You can add and manage your payment info under the billing page as well as see historical billing usage under the account billing page:

Each Railway account has the option to associate that user's Discord account. Integration is required to enroll in Railway's Beta program dubbed Priority Boarding. You can link the account under the Account Settings page below the GitHub integration section.

If the Discord user has not joined the Railway Discord server, linking the account will automatically invite the Discord user to the server.

Priority Boarding Enrollment

For the most adventurous, we offer a pre-release feature program- Priority Boarding.

Railway users in the Discord can assign themselves a Priority Boarding role by typing /beta in the Railway Discord server. Those who have their Discord account integrated will then be able to access and share feedback on pre-release features.
