The CorrLinks website created in conjunction with the Advanced Technologies Group and various corrections facilities allows people who have loved ones in prison the chance to maintain communication with them. The system is designed as an email program to let friends and family keep in touch in a way that had not really been possible before CorrLinks was made available other than the occasional phone call that inmates were allowed. What this means is that friends and family of those who are in prison can actually send immediate correspondence (rather than sending something via traditional mail).
If you have found yourself in a situation where you need to use CorrLinks to have email correspondence with someone who is in prison, the following guide will help walk you through the process of setting up your account through the web site and how to log in to CorrLinks. We will also discuss blocking inmate contact through CorrLinks as well for those who wish to do so.
Create a CorrLinks Login Account
To set up a new account through the CorrLinks system, you will have to go to the website’s Sign Up page: https://corrlinks.com/SignUp.aspx and fill out the form asking you to enter your first name, last name, email address and a chosen password. Additionally, if you have received an invitation to use CorrLinks from an inmate, the email that you received to set your account up should also have an identification code in it. If you have one of these codes, insert it into the appropriately labeled box before continuing your account creation.
After you submit the sign up form, you will be sent an email to verify your account. After you verify your email account and login information with the site, you can move on to the next section to sign in.
