Welcome to Scribd! We’re delighted that you'd like to join us. There are a few different ways you can create an account — we like to make it as easy as possible so everyone can enjoy what Scribd has to offer!
To create a basic, free account on Scribd, you just need to click on ‘Join’ in the top-right corner of the site, or click the "Sign Up" link at the bottom of the "Sign In" window. It’ll bring up box that looks like this one:
As you can see, all that you need to do is type in your name, your email address, think up a password to protect your account, and click ‘Sign Up’. And you’re done! It’s that simple to start using Scribd.
Another option would be to sign up using your Facebook account by clicking the blue button with the Facebook symbol on it. Scribd does not require you to use Facebook or to link Facebook to your Scribd profile, but it is an easy way to have a more personal profile on Scribd. You’ll be prompted to allow Scribd to access some of your Facebook profile data, and you’ll have to agree to this in order to proceed with this sign-up method.
When you use the "Sign Up With Facebook" option, your Facebook account credentials are what you'll use to log into your account. If you'd like to set a password for your Scribd account so that you can also log into Scribd without using your Facebook account, you can do this in your Account Settings page.
A bit of a warning: if you already have a Scribd account that you created which is not linked to your Facebook profile, and then you ‘log on’ using Facebook, you’ll actually end up creating a second, separate Scribd account. If this happens to you, you can always contact Scribd support and we'll help get things sorted out for you!
You can also use your Google account to register an account with Scribd. While it's absolutely not mandatory, linking your Scribd account to your Google account will allow you to sign in using Google on any device you choose to read on!
Not sure if you already have a Scribd account registered? If you already have a Scribd account registered with the email address associated with your Google account, signing up through Google will link your Google account to the existing Scribd account registered with that email address.
Once you've registered a Scribd account using your Google account, you'll be able to use the "Continue with Google" option on your Scribd account to log in on your device of choice!
Please note: When you use the "Sign Up With Google" option, your Google account credentials are what you'll use to log into your account. If you'd like to set a password for your Scribd account so that you can also log into Scribd without using your Google account, you can do this in your Account Settings page.
Once you’ve signed up, you can come back and enjoy Scribd anytime by clicking on ‘Log In’ which is right above the sign up link. You'll just have to enter in your email address or username and your password (or click that blue button if you went the Facebook route) and you'll be connected to Scribd.
We’re also conveniently available on several mobile devices, so you can download our app on your iPhone, iPad, Android device, Fire tablet, or Nook HD and sign up or log in with us that way!
Now you can:
- Save books, audiobooks, and documents to your library for easy access later. (We automatically bookmark the spot where you left off in each book!)
- Create reading lists for yourself or to share
- Leave ratings and reviews on Scribd content
- Sync your saved books and other data with your mobile device
- Share your own content by publishing it on Scribd
The next step if you want to get even more from your account with Scribd is to purchase a premium membership!
If you purchase a membership with us, you'll unlock hundreds of thousands of titles (ebooks, audiobooks, news and magazine articles, sheet music and more) including bestselling books and new releases in every genre. We're just putting that option out there as something to consider!
If you have any other questions about signing up, just contact Scribd support and let us know how we can help. For now, welcome to Scribd and happy reading!
