A variant is the very classic registration via e-mail. If you decide this, you must also provide a user name, password, and full name.
The second variant is the Login via Facebook account. We would however advise against. So it happened in the past for invitation requests that Kiwi has unasked sent to all Facebook friends. Who does not want to bother his friends and prefer to play it safe, choosing the classic version.

Criticism of the platform
What's Kiwi - critically considered? A problem that also have other portals of this kind is the observance of the guidelines. Especially if you can anonymously ask questions, which often attracts those lead to no good. In the event that one is being harassed or encounters fake profiles, a person's function should be introduced. Which unfortunately is still missing.
When it comes to data protection, the portal is somewhat questionable: So these spam waves, which have multiplied played on Facebook, should be considered critical.

Therefore, we recommend logging in via email, not via Facebook.
