Head over to and signup for a new account.

Create a database cluster by going to Database > Create.

Add a database user by going to Database Access > Add new database user.

Use Password authentication method. The set the username and password you want. Ensure it is secure though.

Add a Built-in Role and select the Read and write to any database option and click Add User to create the database user.

Now head back to Database and click on Connect > Connect your application.

Copy the connection URI and replace the <password> in the URI to the password you set for the database user you created earlier.

The URI will look like the following. Make sure to replace <password> and <dbname>, <username> and <cluster> will be filled out for you.
