Start by opening a browser and going to UPHOLD. From here click the green button that says “sign up now”. Now simply type your email address in the top field and in the password box, as soon as you click in it you’ll see a drop-down menu that gives you instructions or rules on how to pick a good strong password. Create a password. Be sure to write it down somewhere. And from the drop-down menu of this box, confirm your country of residence. Now decide if you want to check this box to get the latest Uphold news and updates, uncheck it if you do not.
And now on this page are going to supply some simple information like your first name and your last name. And in this field you’re going to create a new user name, this is a name you going to want to remember so write it down somewhere. This is the name you’ll be known by on Uphold. Now confirm the state or province you’re from and then finish by putting in your birthday and click “next”.
Now this notification says that an email was just sent to you by Uphold to your email account. So you’re going to want to go find that email. So I go to my Gmail account… open that email from Uphold and it says “Click the get started link to get going”. I click it and it brings me back to Uphold. Now the final step is to supply here a mobile phone number. This is a number that every time you log into your Uphold account they are going to send you a security pass code. So put in the phone number of the cell phone you want to use. When you go to Uphold or do a transaction you’re going to supply your username and password. They are going to send a code to this number. When you get it on your phone, you are going to type it into this box. In this particular instance the code is 6092900.
Click “Verify” and congratulations you just set up your Uphold account!
