Q: Why did Frontier build a membership programme?

We launched memberships to ensure the long-term survival of Frontier and to build a community around people who care about independent journalism in Myanmar.

Q: What exactly do you mean by memberships?

We mean that we’re building a community by creating opportunities for our members to collaborate and engage with us, and with each other. Contributions from Frontier members also support our independent reporting, which we make available to everyone.

We provide members with a range of additional benefits, including a regular peak behind-the-scenes at Frontier, additional political analysis and access to online events. We’ve also developed products that our members can subscribe to, including a Daily Briefing focused on the latest developments in Myanmar and a Media Monitor of the top stories from print and online Myanmar-language media.

Q: Where can I find out more about your Daily Briefing and Media Monitor?

Both the Daily Briefing and Media Monitor are published every weekday. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with us on and we’d be happy to set up a free trial.

Q: How can I become a Frontier member?

You can sign up by clicking here and choosing one of the membership packages.

Q: Can I buy a membership for my team?

Yes, absolutely. We’ve designed two membership packages for institutions such as embassies, NGOs, businesses and universities. One package is for small institutions (up to five log-ins) and the other is for large institutions (up to 20 log-ins). Both packages include the option for each member of your team to subscribe to the Daily Briefing and the Media Monitor.

If you have a really big team and you’d like more than 20 logins, send us an email and we can talk about creating a custom package.

Q: Can we transfer membership from one team member to another?

Yes, institutional members can update the email addresses for their team at any time.

Q: I want to become a member but I don’t have a credit card. Can I pay for a membership with cash or by direct deposit?

We try our best to accommodate a range of payment options. Send us an email at and we’ll organise this for you.

Q: How can I gift a membership to another individual or institution?

You can either do that through our memberships homepage or by clicking on the yellow ‘F’ logo in the bottom right corner of the Frontier homepage.

Q: How do I log in to my Frontier account?

Click the yellow ‘F’ logo in the bottom right corner of the Frontier homepage. You can either sign in using a magic link that we send to your email address, or by creating a password. You can do this by clicking the yellow ‘F’ logo and Edit Profile. You can also use your Google or Facebook account to log in.

Q: I’ve signed up and logged in. How do I edit my profile, manage my newsletters, manage my subscription or gift a subscription to someone else?

You can do all of these things by clicking on the yellow ‘F’ logo in the bottom right hand corner of the page, revealing a menu of options.

Q: Do you have an app?

We offer a web app (also known as a progressive web app) rather than a traditional mobile application. To do this, you navigate to the Frontier webpage in your preferred browser and save or add it to your home screen. On iOS, you can do this by clicking on the “share” button and navigating to the bottom, while Google has a helpful guide for Android devices.
