Ready to join the Periscope community? We can’t wait to see what you’ll share! Creating a Periscope account is easy. You can download our app from the iTunes App store or the Google Play Store

To sign up with Twitter:

  1. Sign in using your Twitter credentials. If you have multiple Twitter accounts on your device, you will be prompted to choose which one you want to sign up with.
  2. Your Twitter profile picture and bio will migrate over to your Periscope account, and we will build a list of suggested followers based on who you follow on Twitter. Remember, Periscope doesn't automatically import your Twitter followers.
  3. Enter your name.
  4. Choose a Periscope username (handle). This can be different from your current Twitter handle.
  5. Your bio information transfers over from Twitter; you can always edit it in your Periscope profile.
To sign up with your phone number:
  1. Make sure you're using Periscope on the phone you want to sign up with.
  2. Once you're on the login screen tap Sign Up with Phone Number.
  3. Enter the required info and tap Send Confirmation Code.
  4. You'll receive an SMS with your confirmation code. Pop that in the prompt.
  5. If you have problems, tap Resend Confirmation Code.
  6. You'll go back to the login screen, wait for a few and then you'll be redirected to create your profile! Remember, your username needs to be 2 or more characters.

When you logout of or quit Periscope, tap Log In with Phone Number and you'll be prompted to enter your phone number and send a confirmation code again. Don't worry, you're not going through the sign up process again, this is just a different way to log into Periscope. It replaces the use of a username/password combination. We only use your phone number to log you into your account; it will not be used in any other way.
