Sign up for a SecretHub account

Now that the secrethub CLI is installed on your operating system, let’s create an account. Personal developer accounts are free, so run the signup command and claim yours:

secrethub signup

You now have your very own SecretHub account!

A credential is placed in the .secrethub folder in your home directory, which will be used to authorize and to locally encrypt and decrypt your secrets, so that we will never have the ability to see them.

Remember your username, you’ll need it later to replace your-username with your own in example code.
