Creating a Figma Account

You can sign up for a Figma account via the following methods:

  1. Email Address (and unique password).
  2. Google Account.

Note: If someone has given you Edit access to a File, you will still need to create an account with Figma  before you can start collaborating.

1 | Email Address

You can sign up for Figma by giving us your email address and setting up a unique password for Figma.

  1. Head to and click Sign up in the top right corner.

    Or, follow this link directly:
  2. In the pop-up window, enter your Email address in the field provided:
  3. Enter a unique Password in the field underneath:
  4. Click the Sign up button to complete the process.

You will be logged into your Figma account immediately, but we recommend you complete your account verification after signing up by clicking the link in the verification email we sent to your email address.

2 | Google Account

If you have a Google account, you can sign up for a Figma account via Google's Single Sign-On (SSO) process.

  6. A Figma account will then be created under your name and email address.

What next?

Once you sign up for a free Figma account, you will have access to a Drafts folder - this will allow you to view and create as many personal files as you like.

If you'd like to step it up a notch and collaborate with other designers on projects, then you can create Teams in Figma.

For teams of up to 2 editors, Figma is still free to use - we call this a Starter team, or plan. For teams of 3 or more editors, you'll need to sign up for our Paid Professional plan.

For enterprise or established companies, made up of multiple teams, we have the Organizations plan.
