Creating a ChatGPT Account

Once you’ve verified your email, you can log in to your ChatGPT account. You’ll see the ChatGPT bot on the left side of the screen, waiting to chat with you. Go ahead and type “Hi!” or “Hello!” to get the conversation started.

ChatGPT works best when you speak to it casually, as if talking to another person.

The more you chat, the smarter ChatGPT gets and the more naturally the conversation will flow.
