Why Create an IMDb Account?

IMDb is a great website, mainly because you don’t have to worry about logging in each time you visit. It’s not necessary to have an account with IMDb unless you wish to partake in certain things. Writing a review or giving a rating are two things that require you to be a registered user with the website. 

Signing up for IMDb

  1. Go to and find the Log In button on the right side of the header. Next to that is a triangle symbol for a drop-down menu. Click it, and then select Register. Once you’ve registered once, you’ll only need to select Log In and will not have to use the dropdown menu again.


  2. Enter your information in the blanks, and when you’re done, select Register.


  3. You’ll be redirected back to IMDb's homepage, where a notice at the top will let you know to check your email and confirm your registration. 

Now you can take full advantage of what IMDb has to offer -- participate in group discussions, rate and review movies, and more.
