Instagram is a popular social media platform that you can use to share pictures with your friends or followers. It's also a great tool for businesses! In this blog post, we'll walk through the steps of signing up for a new account on Instagram.
1. Go to the Instagram website and click on the "Sign up" button.
We'll begin by opening a web browser and navigating to the Instagram homepage at instagram.com/accounts/sign_up. Here, we can see that there's an option for us to click on: "Sign Up."
Let's go ahead and select it!
- Click here to open Instagram website in new tab.
- Click here to open Instagram website in new window.
Now that we're on the Sign Up page, let's fill out our information!
2. Fill out your information, including email address and username
Next, let's enter our password into the second box. We need to make sure that it meets all of Instagram's requirements, which includes that it must be at least eight characters long and also contain both letters and numbers.
Once we've entered our password into the first box, let's go ahead and enter it again to confirm it in the second box below.
3. Click the "Create Account" button
Now that we've successfully entered our password into the first and second boxes, let's move on to entering a username for our Instagram account. This should be something short but descriptive of your business or brand name. For this example blog post, I'll go ahead and use "williamgryan." Now you can see why it's important to make sure your username is easy to remember!
Once you have chosen your desired username from the drop-down menu above, click "Next" at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
Now that we're done with all three fields for entering information about ourselves (username, email address, and password), let's hit "Create Account"!
4. Choose a password
Now that we've created our username and password, let's go ahead and create a strong password for Instagram. This is the only way to ensure your account stays secure! Let’s be sure this time it has both numbers and letters (and remember minimum of eight characters).
Once you have chosen your desired password from the drop-down menu above, click "Next" at the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
The next step will confirm whether or not you're creating an account with a new email address or using one that already exists on Instagram. Since I'm starting fresh here, I'll make sure my information shows as follows: Email – Create New Account; Username – WilliamRyanPhoto; Password – letsgolive.
5. Enter your phone number
Now, before we go any further, don't forget to enter the correct phone number for your account. If you have an iPhone or Android device, Instagram will send a code via SMS text message so be sure to include it here!
Once you've entered all of this information correctly and clicked "Next," let's wait until we receive our verification code from Instagram.
We should only need one attempt at entering in this six-digit authentication code (if needed). Once complete, click “Done” on the lower right corner of the screen. Now that we're done with all six steps, congratulations--you now know how to sign up for an Instagram account!
6. Confirm your phone number by clicking on an automated call or text message sent to you with a verification code
Now that we're done with all six steps, congratulations--you now know how to sign up for an Instagram account!
