Creating a reddit account is the first step to become a redditor. You need to create a reddit account if you want to vote, comment, submit a post, create a subreddit, or create an ad.

Choosing a username

Your username on reddit is relatively unimportant compared to Twitter and other social media apps. This is because reddit has no profile page that you can promote.

In order to select the proper username, first identify what you will be using reddit for. Do you want people to recognize you on reddit? Are you representing a brand?

If you do not want to be recognized on reddit, simply create an abstract username that is maybe loosely related to your interests.

If you do want to be recognized, create a username that matches your Twitter handle or other social media identity. If you are representing a company, include the name of the company and your position (e.g. CompanyName_CEO).

Creating your account

Creating an account on reddit is quick and easy. Simply click the register button in the top right-hand corner of the homepage. Enter your desired username, a password, and optional email address. Note that you can create as many accounts as you want under the same email address.
