Apps & Organizations

Add, Change, or Delete Apps in your OneSignal Account.

Signing up at creates an account for your email address. Your email can then be associated with multiple OneSignal Apps and Organizations.

A OneSignal App is used for a single project to house the relevant user and messaging data for all platforms your application supports, e.g website, iOS and Android mobile apps, emails, etc.

If you have multiple environments for your applications like staging, development, production, etc. you can create multiple apps within an Organization. OneSignal Apps are free to create without limit. OneSignal only charges based on Apps within a paid Organization if you want upgraded features.

A OneSignal Organization is a container that helps manage multiple OneSignal Apps. Organizations provide a consolidated view and control over your apps, people with access to your apps, security policies and billing details. Organizations must have at least one app. You can create as many organizations as you need. For example a "paid organization" for your production apps and a "free organization" for your development and testing apps.
