How to create your account

Creating your Scout account is super simple! Click one of the options below that best describes you:

Creating your account on Android mobile devices

You might’ve noticed that upon downloading and opening the dscout mobile app, you’re able to peak around some parts of the app without having to create an account.

If you like what you see and want to start applying to missions, you’ll have to create a dscout scout account. Follow these steps to do so:

  1. Open the dscout mobile app.
  2. Click on the Triple Horizontal Lines icon ☰ on the top-right corner of your screen to surface the side menu.
  3. Tap on Sign In.
  4. When you’re on the Sign In page, tap on the Sign Up button.
  5. Enter your first name, last name, email, and a password and hit Sign Up (please note: your password must be at least 8 characters long).
  6. Set up your profile.
  7. Apply to your first mission!

Pro tip: If you tap the Sign Up button, but it brings you back to the Sign In page, you might already have an account with that email address. Try logging in or resetting your password.

Creating your account on iOS mobile devices

Creating your account on an iPhone (or iPad) is easy, just follow these simple steps:

  1. Open the dscout mobile app.
  2. Tap the Create Account button.
  3. Enter your first name, last name, email, and a password (please note: your password must be at least 8 characters long).
  4. Hit Next on the top right corner of the screen.
  5. Choose to set up your permissions.
  6. Set up your profile and hit Save Profile.
  7. Apply to your first mission!

Pro tip: While you'll be able to create an account and use the dscout app on an iPad (and other tablet devices), we definitely recommend using a smartphone! 

Creating your account on the web

You can easily create a scout account on the web if you’re on your desktop or laptop computer using our web portal.

  1. Navigate to www.dscout.com.
  2. Click on the Sign Up button on the top-right of the screen.
  3. On the right side of your screen, you’ll see a card that says Participate & Get Paid. Click on the button that says Become a “Scout”.
  4. Enter your first name, last name, email, and a password. Then hit the big red Sign Up button.
  5. Agree to our Scout Terms and Conditions by hitting the Accept button (please note: you’ll have to scroll down and read the fine print before the Accept button is activated).
  6. Update your profile or enter your telephone number to get the mobile app.

Pro tip: Although you can create a scout account on the web (and even update your profile), you won’t be able to do much on the web aside from participating in a Live session. You’ll need to download the dscout mobile app (from the App Store or the Google Play Store, depending on your phone) on your smartphone to be able to apply to and participate in missions.
