Creating an account on the app

You can create a Wattpad account using your Facebook/Google+ account or email. Download the app, then click Sign Up.

Please note, your email is how we communicate you if you experience any issues. We recommend not using your school email address, as that will disappear and be inaccessible once you graduate.
