Creating a 23andMe account

Anyone over the age of 13 with a valid email address can create a 23andMe account at any time. Note that although you enter an email address when placing an order in the 23andMe store, placing an order does not create an account.

Note that your account setup is not complete until you confirm your email address. In order to contribute your own Genetic Information for analysis you must be eighteen (18) years of age or older or have a legal guardian register on your behalf to an account they create in their own name.
