Getting Started

Welcome to Pixelfed!

To create an account using a web browser:
  1. Go to
  2. Click on the register link at the top of the page.
  3. Enter your name, email address, username and password.

You can update your account by visiting the account settings page.

If your desired username is taken you can add underscores, dashes, or numbers to make it unique.

Pixelfed is a federated application, changing your username is not supported in every federated software so we cannot allow username changes. Your best option is to create a new account with your desired username.
