Want a Daum account?
A mobile number! You can use any number as long as it is not yet registered to Daum. Also, please make sure that you can receive a text message.
CREATING a Daum Account
You can use a tablet, smartphone, or whatever to register, though the Daum website may look differently compared to the below pictures which were taken from Internet Explorer.
1. Go to www.daum.net.
2. Click the 회원가입 (Sign Up) link inside the Login box.
Second Box (Password): Create a password consisting of at least 8 characters. You can use a combination of uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols.
Third Box (Re-enter Password): Just type in your password again.
Fourth Box (Name): Type in your name. E.g. John Smith. You can put a space between your first and last name and you can also use Hangul. First name-only is fine.
Fifth Box (Mobile Number): The country code will be matched with your IP address. Thus, just type your digits in the box provided, then click on 인증 (Certify button). You should receive a text message containing a code afterward.
Sixth Box (Certification Number): Enter the code from the text message, then click on 확인 (Confirm) button. You have ten minutes to complete this. The code is usually sent real-time.
Seventh Box (Email address): This is not required, but I recommend it for account recovery.
6. Lastly, click on 다음단계 (Next Step) button.
Done! You now have an account.
To go back to the Daum home page and to start checking mail or other services like Cafe, Music, tvPot, et cetera, just click on 서비스로 돌아가기.
Tip: Error message “유효시간이 초과되거나, 잘못된 접근입니다. 처음부터 다시 시도해 주세요.” means you have to go back to Step 1 or 2, while “[Mobile number] 입력하신 번호로 인증번호를 발송합니다. 번호가 정확한지 확인해 주세요.” means the mobile number must be authenticated. Just press OK to proceed.
