Creating a Chatwoot Account

Last updated on Feb 29, 2024

This guide will help you create your account on Chatwoot cloud or any self-hosted Chatwoot installations.

I am using the self-hosted version

If you are using a self-hosted Chatwoot installation, you may directly open the URL {your_installation_url}/app/auth/signup.

P.S. We have a wholly different guide for self-hosted Chatwoot.

I am using the cloud version

Step 1. If you would like to use Chatwoot cloud, you can open chatwoot.com and click on the "Create a free account" button. This button takes you to the signup page.

Or, use this sign up link.

Step 2. Fill up the signup form presented to you.

The fields required in the signup form are as explained below. Fill up the fields one-by-one.

  1. Full Name

    Enter your full name. For, e.g., John Hopkins.

  2. Work email

    Enter a valid work e-mail address. For, e.g., john.hopkins@companyname.com.

  3. Account name

    Enter the name of your company. For e.g., Wayne Enterprises.

  4. Password

    Password must contain at least one uppercase character (A-Z), at least one numeric character (0..9), and at least one special character (!@#$%&*()_+-=[]{}\|'"/\.,<>:;?~).

  5. Confirm password

    Confirm password should match with the password entered above.

    Step 3. After signing up, you would be automatically logged into the dashboard. To complete the signup, you need to verify your email address. You will receive an email with the subject Confirmation Instructions from Chatwoot, as shown below.

    Step 4. Click on the Confirm my account button. You will be taken to your Chatwoot dashboard.
