Will I get charged when I sign up for a free account?

No. Starting is free. When you sign up, your free account starts with a free trial subscription, which includes a USD200 credit to explore Azure services for 30 days, plus 12 months of free popular services and more than 25 services that are always free. At the end of your first 30 days, you can continue using your free products after you upgrade your account to a Pay-As-You-Go Azure subscription and remove the spending limit. If you stay within the service quantities included for free, you won’t have to pay anything.
