  4. 4

    enter your personal details including your address and a security question - your email address will become your BT ID username

  5. 5

    enter the password you'd like to use - it should be eight characters or longer and should also include a mixture of letters and numbers

    once you've entered a password press Continue at the bottom of the form and you'll then see a summary of your information
