Need a Naver Account? Here’s How!

Good news! Creating a Naver account has been made easier.

Naver Corporation introduced a new registration process for us who live outside Korea. If their system determined that you’re from another country, it would show the English registration form automatically. That’s why there’s no need for a third-party translator.

Creating a Naver Account

In order to register, an active mobile number is required. Make sure that you can receive a text message.

You can sign up using a smartphone, tablet, or whatever device, however, please note that the Naver website may show differently compared to the screenshots below.
