No, user accounts are completely optional; all of the main features of BibleGateway.com are available whether you're logged into a user account or not. However, several very useful features (such as note-taking and Bible passage highlighting) are only available if you're logged into a BibleGateway.com account. A number of planned future features will make use of of user accounts as well. For these reasons, we strongly recommend that you create a BibleGateway.com account; it's complete free and is easy to do.
