Create a new user

Creates a new user.

  • By default, the user needs to verify their email address before logging in. To turn this off, disable Confirm email in your project.
  • Confirm email determines if users need to confirm their email address after signing up.
    • If Confirm email is enabled, a user is returned but session is null.
    • If Confirm email is disabled, both a user and a session are returned.
  • When the user confirms their email address, they are redirected to the SITE_URL by default. You can modify your SITE_URL or add additional redirect URLs in your project.
  • If signUp() is called for an existing confirmed user:
    • When both Confirm email and Confirm phone (even when phone provider is disabled) are enabled in your project, an obfuscated/fake user object is returned.
    • When either Confirm email or Confirm phone (even when phone provider is disabled) is disabled, the error message, User already registered is returned.
  • To fetch the currently logged-in user, refer to getUser().

const { data, error } = await supabase.auth.signUp({
  email: '[email protected]',
  password: 'example-password',
