Step 3: Cloudflare Dashboard

Once you verify your account the link in the email will send you back to Cloudflare to either login or to view your Cloudflare dashboard. If you were already logged in, you would need to refresh your browser to pull in your new access. The first page will ask you to enter your website URL and any details about it, but if you are an AWD client and you are signing up to share access with us you can disregard this.
