Below are instructions on how to create your Modesto Bee Press+ account. You will need an account with Press Plus to gain access to our digital products, including the e-Bee, our online replica edition, on your laptop, desktop and iPad, our smartphone apps and our website, To start, go to and follow the below instructions. Directions are in red. You can sign up for our monthly or annual packages. If you're an existing print subscriber, you already have unlimited access. However, you do need a separate Press Plus account. Once you have an account, download the iPhone/Android or iPad app from your respective app stores. Then, you'll simply need to log in once with your Press Plus account email and password per device (desktop, laptop, tablet, iPad, smartphone).

NOTE: To view our sites using the iPhone/Android or iPad app, you must download the app from your respective app stores. For instance, to download the iPhone or iPad app, go to the app store and search "Modesto Bee" or "Merced Sun-Star", then download the app.
