If that was a little too fast for you and you need a bit more instruction, check out our step-by-step instructions below (with pictures) so you don’t miss a beat!
Launch the app by tapping the WeChat icon on your home screen. When it opens, tap the white Sign Up button in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
In the labelled boxes, enter the information required. Tap the “Full Name” box and enter your name, and tap the “Phone Number” box to enter your mobile phone number. Then tap the “Password” box to create a password for your WeChat account.
When you’re finished and have double-checked that all your information is correct, tap the green Sign Up button at the bottom of the screen.
WeChat will send a text message to your mobile phone now, verifying the number you entered was correct. This process will happen automatically, as WeChat can detect if you received the message on your device. The process should take less than a minute, so if it takes longer, check the number you entered again.
And that’s how you create a new WeChat account! Make sure you have read our tutorial on how to download and install WeChat, as you will need to do this before you can sign up for WeChat. If you’re all set, check out our next tutorial on how to use WeChat, so you can become a WeChat pro today!
