What is IFTTT?

IFTTT helps you do more with hundreds of services you love, including Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote, Nest, Fitbit, Amazon, and Gmail. To see a list of all of the services on IFTTT,  take a look at our Search page.


How does IFTTT work?

After signing up for an account, you can browse services and turn on Applets.  Applets connect the different services on IFTTT. For example, you can back up your Instagrams to Dropbox, have your lights turn on when you enter your home, or automatically send your team a Slack message when you’re on your way into work. Services have built thousands of Applets that you can browse and turn on. If you don’t find something that fits your needs, you can also combine two services to make something custom.
