You can register a new World Walking account via http://worldwalking.org/register or on our iPhone or Android apps (download at http://worldwalking.org/app).
Types of account
When you create a new account you have two options - you can either register with your email address and a password, or you can Connect with Facebook.
A normal World Walking account requires you to register with your email address and create a password which you will use to login via the website/app on future visits.
A Facebook World Walking account is created when you register via the 'Connect with Facebook' button on the http://worldwalking.org/register page. This allows you to skip the hassle of creating another password and entering your name / email address. Instead, you give us permission via Facebook to save some of your Facebook profile information including your name, email and photo. You can also optionally allow us to share your World Walking walk activity on your Facebook profile.
If you register with a Facebook account, you must click the 'Connect with Facebook' button on the website/app on future visits, or you can set a password in your account settings to login using that as well.
