Step 1: The first step to creating an account is to type in the website into your web (internet) browser. To create an account you will need to input your first and last name, mobile phone number (no landlines) or an email address, and your birthdate.

Step 2: From the main page of the Instagram website, you will have the option to either log in or sign up. Since you do not have an account setup yet, click on Sign Up.

Step 3: Enter your information into the spaces provided. Once your information is entered, click on Sign up.

Step 4: Now you will be asked to enter your birthdate. Once it is entered, click on Next. By tapping on the downwards arrow beside the month, date, and year you can scroll through to choose your date of birth.

Step 5: A 6-digit code or confirmation code will now be sent to the mobile phone number or to the email address that you used to sign up. Enter the code and click on Confirm.
