Creating a Descript Account

In order to start creating with Descript, you'll need to make an account first. To get started, navigate to www.descript.com and click the Sign Up button in the top right corner.

After doing so, you will be re-directed to our authentication portal. Descript currently supports two methods of authentication:

  • Sign up with Google (Google OAuth)
  • Username and Password

 

Using Google OAuth

Click the Sign up with Google button.

If you are already logged into a Google account, choose the account you'd like to create the account with from the list.

If you aren't signed into a Google account, enter the email address and password associated with the Google account you'd like to use.

Once the account has been successfully created, Descript will begin downloading to your computer. Click the downloaded file (usually indicated at the bottom of your browser, or in your computer's Downloads folder) to begin installation. After it has finished installation, you can sign in by clicking the Sign In with Google button.

Can I change my password if I sign up with Google OAuth?

Creating an account with Google OAuth means that you will use your Google login credentials to automatically sign into Descript with the "Sign In with Google" button. You will not need to login with a Username and Password.

 

Using Email and Password

Enter your email, a secure password, and first and last name, then click the right arrow at the bottom of the window.

After it has finished installation, you can sign in by clicking the "Sign in to Descript" button, then entering the Username and Password in the Sign In window.
