1.4 Creating a Snapchat account

If you’re new to Snapchat and want to discover it, your first step should be to get a Snapchat account. If you haven’t already got one, this page will help you how to create a new Snapchat account and what you have to do in order to get one.

How to install a Snapchat account


STEP 1: First of all, install the Snapchat app. If you haven’t installed the app yet, read here how to do it. When you got the app, open it.

STEP 2: After opening the Snapchat app, you have to tap the ‘sign up’ button.

STEP 3: The first thing you have to do next is to enter your email address and set a password. You must be sure this email address haven’t been used already to create a Snapchat account. Make sure your password is very strong, so you won’t get hacked.

STEP 4: After that, you have to select your date of birth. After you have done that, you can tap the sign up button.

STEP 5: Then you can choose a unique username, which suits your identity on Snapchat. A lot of usernames are already taken, so make sure you choose an original one.  After Snapchat says it is possible to use your chosen username, tap continue.

Pay attention: You can’t change your username. Take care!

STEP 6: Next, you can verify your phone number, so Snapchat knows it’s real. This will also help you to find other Snapchat users, as others can find you through their contact list and phone number. In this guide we have chosen not to verify our phone number.

STEP 7: After that, you have to select all images containing a ghost in order to verify that you’re human, we guess.

STEP 8: The next step is to give Snapchat permission to access your contact list, so Snapchat can find your friends and suggest them as possible Snapchat Friends. For this guide, we have chosen to not give this permission, yet. If you don’t want to, just tap ‘don’t allow’ and it will work out just fine.

DONE! And there you go! You have got yourself a fancy Snapchat account, which you may want to adjust a little to your own preferences. You can read more on your personal Snapchat account on other pages of this Snapchat guide, so please continue reading. Now it’s time to get used to snapchat!

TIP: you can only summit your username ones! So mind that by making your username!
