Step 1: Create an AWS Account - Amazon Interactive Video Service

Step 1: Create an AWS Account

To use Amazon IVS, you need an AWS account. If you don't already have one, you are prompted to create it when you sign up. To create an AWS account:

  1. Open

  2. Follow the online instructions.

    Part of the sign-up procedure involves receiving a phone call or text message and entering a verification code. Also, you will have to provide billing information, although the basic tier of service is free. You are not charged for any AWS services that you sign up for unless you use them.

  3. After creating the account, you will get one email with your Sign-in URL and User Name and another email (from your AWS account administrator) with your password. You must change the password during your first sign-in.
