This post is also available in: 日本語 Español Nederlands

Creating a Vivaldi account gives you access to:


Information needed to register a new account:

  • Username. Choose a unique username. This handle will be used for your new email address, blog link, display name on the forum and to log in to the different Vivaldi services.
  • Age. We need this information to prove to authorities that you are older than 16 to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
  • Password. Your super secure, unique password which you don’t use anywhere else. Consider using a passphrase made up of random words. Since shorter passwords are easy to crack these days, the password must be at least 12 characters long.
  • Recovery email. This address will be used to activate the account. It is also used to send you account-related messages (e.g. password reset) and technical updates.
  • Captcha. A security question in the form of a simple mathematical equation. Type the answer as a number, for example: 2 + 2 = 4, not four.
  • Phone number. If you wish to use Vivaldi’s Webmail and Blogging services, for security reasons, it is necessary to verify your phone number. This can be done on your account’s profile on after activating the account via email.

Activating the account

Before you log in to your new account it needs to be activated through a link in an email that is sent to your account’s recovery email. The link is valid for 24 hours.

In case you haven’t received it, first check the Spam folder, maybe it landed there. If the email hasn’t arrived or the link has expired, send yourself a new account activation email.

Phone verification

When you’re planning to use Webmail and Blogs, you also need to verify your phone number. To do that:

  1. After activating the account, log in to your account’s profile on
  2. Enter your phone number and click Update.
  3. Check your phone for the SMS with the verification code.
  4. Enter the code on the new page and click Submit.
