Create users

Users can be created through the sign-up flow. They have to provide a unique authentication identifier which can be an email address, phone number, or username.

If the sign-up attempt succeeds, a new session and user are created for your application instance.

After creation, the user's authentication identifier can be used at any time to complete the sign-in flow and get an active session.

Whenever you have an active session, that means you can access the currently signed-in User object, through the Clerk object.

The current user can be accessed at any time through the Clerk object, or the useUser React hook.
