How to Create the Account of Polkadot
Currently, mainstream wallets support the creation of Polkadot wallet addresses.

PC

Phone

2. Use the 「polkadot {.js}」 to create the account Polkadot{.js} Browser Plugin

Install the Browser Plugin

The browser plugin is available for both Google Chrome (and Chromium based browsers like Brave) and FireFox. Download the plugins here.

Create Account

Open the Polkadot{.js} browser extension by clicking the logo on the top bar of your browser. You will see a browser popup not unlike the one below.
Click the big plus button or select "Create new account" from the small plus icon in the top right. The Polkadot{.js} plugin will then use system randomness to make a new seed for you and display it to you in the form of twelve words.
You should back up these words as explained here. It is imperative to store the seed somewhere safe, secret, and secure. If you cannot access your account via Polkadot{.js} for some reason, you can re-enter your seed through the "Add account menu" by selecting "Import account from pre-existing seed".

Name Account & Password

The account name is arbitrary and for your use only. The password will be used to encrypt this account's information. You will need to re-enter it when using the account for any kind of outgoing transaction or when using it to cryptographically sign a message.
Note that this password does NOT protect your seed phrase. If someone knows the twelve words in your mnemonic seed, they still have control over your account even if they do not know the password.
