    Hi there! Thanks for this. I’ve registered, but I’d love to be able to purchase the Cheese in the Trap webtoon (Line Webtoon doesn’t have the complete comic). I try to purchase and I’m prompted again to verify using either i-PIN or phone, but only Korean phone companies are available. Is there a way to purchase a webtoon as a foreigner? I tried using the help features, but between Google Translate and the lack of a simple “Send your question to us here” form, I just got lost. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hi, Is anyone else getting a message saying the number is unavailable? I get this message after the verification and hit sign up. Thanks.

    Jerry, that’s a great explanation on how to register on Naver!
    I’m just wondering and maybe this question may seem idiotic, but I couldn’t really find any other help: Are you allowed to sign up there, even if you’re a) not of korean heritage and b) living outside of South Korea (for example: France, Germany, Netherlands, etc…)

    Thanks!

    By any chance would you know how to get started with Naver Advertising. Searched the entire web for a support email to Naver, but no luck. Was wondering if you happen to know or know someone familiar with the process. Any feedback will greatly be appreciated.

    The website is totally in Korean. I can’t understand a thing and I do not know how to translate the whole website in English. Is there a way?

    Hello Jerry! I really need some help with registering on Naver. As you may know, Naver has updated their registration form, and I need an account to buy some things from artists abroad. I tried to register, but each time I would get “Sign up is limited temporarily. Please contact Customer Service.” I’ve tried reading through comments, but to no such luck. Customer Service is of no help either, and I’ve scoured Google for any answers. Nothing.

    I hope to hear your reply soon! D:

      I’m sorry, but I don’t have a straightforward solution for that error. Already registered multiple accounts for the sake of updating this guide, but I haven’t encountered such. For real. -.-

    Your instructions provide a good start, but you need to add an explanation of what the actual sign-up screen is asking for. Some of it, I could kind of figure out, but had to ask for help from an employee of the cafe where I am using the computer! And, like IMyMeMine above, I keep getting some sort of message in Korean in red type, which I am assuming means Sign up is limited temporarily, but I have no way of knowing! If you want your info to be complete and the most helpful possible, you should add the info in English for the last screen, including what the message “sign up is limited temporarily” looks like. Thanks!

      Thanks for the input. BTW, what last screen are you referring to? Regarding the “Sign up is limited temporarily” error, I thought I already answered that question previously. Anyway, as per Naver, that has something to do with IP address. They did not clarify it they are blocking IP addresses or whatever. Their customer service is kinda vague about it.

      If you read the guide carefully, you’ll be able to register properly.

      You may use any letters from a to z, numbers, and underscore [minimum of 5 and maximum of 12]. Take note, a to z. Lowercase only.

    Hi! I have a problem. When I type the code then click “Sign Up”, it says that “sign up is temporarily limited.” What can I do? Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I’ve already created an account, but how can I change my birth year? I need to access Naver Café, but it didn’t allow me until I verify my birth year. Please show me a way to change it as detailed as possible.

      There’s no way to change birth year AFAIK. Your other option is to create another account, and use the Korean registration form which is similar to the English one.

        I’ve changed the registration form to Korean, but it’s the same as English one. There isn’t any blank space for birth-year. There are only 2 spaces: “birthday” and “birth month”. So what can I do?

            Hmm… o there’s no way to change my birth-year huh? :(

            Wonder why you have a box to fill in your b-y but I don’t.

            Ah. Where do you come from? I’ll try to fake IP to your country and register a new Naver account. Hope it’ll work :)

      Did you already create an account? If no, adding a birthyear in the English registration form is not possible. However, there is a workaround. Just change the language of the form to Korean or Hangul and use it to register.

        I’m not sure if Naver no longer accepts registrations from overseas which I doubt. I can’t find a way to complete the phone verification. I’d been digging the customer service page, but their guides are also outdated. Let’s just wait for them to fix the registration page in the meantime.

          Hi Jay, I was able to register an account with Naver, via an english registration form with only one problem. It asked me my date and month of birth, but not my year, and I’m finding I can’t access some content due to age restrictions. Do you happen to know if it’s possible to either change this?

          Reply

            Hi! There’s no way to change the birth date in “My Account” page. I think it will be updated automatically if you authenticate your account via i-PIN. If you don’t have an alien registration number or KSSN, then there’s really no way to change it. Perhaps, you can try emailing Naver Support, and request update of birth date. I’m not sure if they can do that. OR, create another account. Just make sure to change the language to Korean in the terms and conditions page so you will be redirected to the Korean registration form which is exactly identical to the English form. The birth year box is working there. You need to enter it manually. e.g. 1990. As per the phone verification, probably you can borrow a phone number from your sibling, or friend. They will not be charged though, and Naver doesn’t spam.

    Is there a Naver website in English language? Because I want to create LINE. There is no Naver website in English? or you can just show us how to turn it English? THANKS

    Excellent information. thank you for sharing.
    I’ve been trying to set up a searchad account on Naver (as a foreigner), but am running into some issues. Is there any chance that you could create a similar walkthrough guide for Searchad.naver.com?

    When I get to Step 6 and click the handyphone button, no box pops up. My pop-up blocker is set to shows when something has been blocked at the top of the web page, but that is not occurring so I don’t know what the issue is. Any ideas what’s going on?

      Not sure why you’re not getting a pop-up blocker notification. Try to disable your pop-up blocker temporarily. After signing-up, turn it on again.

    I checked Naver’s Customer Service page and I got this info:

    For nickname, you can use Hangul up to 10 characters. If you use English alphabet, it can be 2-20 characters long and numbers can be used as well.

    I checked my two accounts and my nicknames are like this -> ExaMpleonly, exampleonly123

    For password, I usually use small characters plus one special symbol like @ then a few numbers. Example: atlas123@

    I did and it said it was available but a pop-up window appears when I click the “agree” (or “next”) button and I can’t copy the text or screen capture it to show you. Do you have any tips on making a nickname or password? (I was looking around and there is an old tutorial for the old version of signing of for Naver and they always made note to captilize everything (except now it specifically tells me to use lowercase for the nickname). Do you have any tips or can you give me some nickname ideas that might allow me to continue you on?

    Hi! How come when I’m almost done something pops up and says “자동가입방지용 문자를 정확하게 입력해 주세요”? It stops me from doing anything else. Thank You.
