You can create an XMR address using one of Monero clients.

The clients below are ideal if you are using Monero for the first time. They are also useful if you are on a device that cannot run a full Monero node.

If you are able to spare the bandwidth and disk space required to run a full node, doing so helps keep the network stable and robust, and also affords you the maximum privacy Monero has to offer.

There are also several third-party clients that interact with the official Monero core daemon, and are able to provide their own additional functionality.
