Username allocation is on a first-come first-served basis. If a username that you want is already taken we suggest that you try using underscores or numbers to create a variation. Some members of our community use Unsplash to create private collections of photos, so while an account may seem dormant, it can be active.
You’ll be prompted to set a username when joining Unsplash.
When you set a username:
- Ensure you add no spaces
- Use only English characters
- Use only lowercase letters
- Use only letters, numbers and underscores
Alternatively if you prefer, you can login in using the Facebook option.
