  • username = name on Facebook (or name+number(s) if it is already taken)
  • email address = same email address on Facebook
  • date of birth = same on Facebook, if you have one listed

You'll need to set up a:

  • password
  • profile picture
  • background picture

You can set up a password through www.wattpad.com/forgot as we do not sync your password or any additional information from Facebook.

Please note:

  • A link to your Facebook profile will appear on your Wattpad profile
  • If you change your email address on Facebook, you must manually change it on Wattpad

Unfortunately, there is no way to log in with Facebook and not have the link to your Facebook profile show up. If you ever want to remove the link from your Wattpad, please see this guide.

Google+

When you sign up, we'll make an account with your email address, but you'll be prompted to pick a:

  • username
