Welcome to the portal!

All of us work together to make Wattpad a creative, safe, and welcoming community. Here are some quick tips to help you have the best possible experience on Wattpad.

Getting started on Wattpad

If this is your first time using a social network, it can be exciting and a little scary too. When teens were asked what advice they had for younger people starting out on social media, here’s what they said:

  • Be respectful and kind to everyone you interact with.

  • Be patient with other people. You don’t know what they’re going through or what they’re dealing with, so keep an open mind and try to imagine things from their point of view.

  • Support other people when they’re having a hard time.

  • Respect your own privacy and other people’s. Don’t post anything about yourself, or share anything about someone else, unless you’ve given some thought about what could go wrong if you do.

  • Check out the Wattpad Empathy Project!

That’s a good place to get started!

For more details on some of these points, and more info on what to do if things go wrong, read on. Check out the links below for info and tips!

Don't forget!

Make sure you’ve read the Terms of Service and Code of Conduct to find out what’s allowed by our rules and what isn’t. If you’re new here, take some time to pay attention to how people behave in the different parts of the site – that could keep you from making some embarrassing mistakes.
