In this tutorial, you will learn how to create Naver account.
This tutorial is an updated version of the original guide I created last year. I created a new post because Naver updated the registration procedure including the page interface.
Create Naver Account
To register for a free Naver account, you only need an active mobile phone number for validation purposes.
There’s an authentication part during registration wherein you need to enter a phone number to get a registration code. You can’t skip this step. Also, make sure that your phone number isn’t used to open a Naver account before. Only one account can be validated with one mobile number.
Step 1: Go to Naver Registration page. Click 회원가입하기 (Register) button.
Step 2: Agree to the Terms and Conditions.
Step 3: Type in your complete name in the first box. You can provide your English name.
Select your date of birth in the second row.
If you’re a male, put a tick on 남. If female, put a tick on 여.
Step 5: Click Authenticate button under Handy Phone.
Step 6: A small window will pop-up. Click 여기 link.
Step 7: Select your country code. Enter your mobile number in the second box. Click Confirm (확인).
Don’t close the window yet. You need to enter the registration number in the same window.
Wait for the SMS containing your registration number from Naver.
Step 8: Enter your registration number. It’s a 6-digit code. For example, 123456.
Step 9: You will get a confirmation like this if you entered the correct registration number.
Click Confirm to close the window.
In this part, you need to enter your personal information to complete the registration.
Step 10: Fill out the form with your personal info.
• In 아이디 (ID) field, do not forget to check the availability of your nominated ID by clicking (Check for Duplicate) button beside @naver.com. The system will refrain you from moving on to the next step by failing to do so. You’ll get a confirmation like below if the ID is available. Click to close the window.
• In 사용자 연락처 (Contact Detail) – provide an active e-mail address like Yahoo or Gmail. If your e-mail domain is not included in the list, select the last option (직접 입력 – Direct Input) to manually enter your e-mail domain.
Step 11: In the next page, double-check the information you’ve entered. Type-in the CAPTCHA code then click Confirm (확인).
Step 12: Congratulations! You have successfully registered.
