How To Sign Up For StumbleUpon

Last updated: May 11, 2015 - 11:47am EDT

Are you ready to start your own personal Internet discovery journey with StumbleUpon?  Your first step on that journey is to create an account on StumbleUpon.  To do that:

  1. Go to www.stumbleupon.com in your web browser.

  2. When you reach StumbleUpon's home page, click Start Exploring.

  3. You can sign up for StumbleUpon by using your Facebook account, but since not everyone has one, we'll show you how to sign up with your email account instead.



    Simply click in each of the four text boxes here and type in (respectively) your name, your email address, a username for yourself, and a password for your account.  Then, click each of the drop-down menus here and select the month, day, and year of your birth.  Finally, click one of the two buttons here to select whether you are male or female (this last one is optional).  When you're done, click Sign Up.

  4. You will have to pass a security check so that StumbleUpon knows that you're a real human wanting to use the service, and not a computer program trying to cause trouble by mass-producing fake accounts.



    Simply click in the box labelled "Moving Letters" and type in the letters that you see moving in the window above (note: they may be different than they are in this screenshot, and they aren't case-sensitive), and then click Join.

  5. On the next page, StumbleUpon will ask you to tell it some of the things that you're interested in, in order to help it get you started discovering new things on the Internet that you might like.



    Click on an interest to mark it with a checkmark, or click an interest that's already marked to remove the checkmark from it.  You must mark at least 5 interests to continue.  Once you've done that, click Save Interests.

After that, you'll be taken to your own personal interface on StumbleUpon.  Congratulations!  You're all set to explore!
