HOW TO CREATE A GMAIL ACCOUNT
If you’re looking to create a new Gmail account (or, in other words, a Google account), you’ve come to the right place. Having your own Gmail or Google account will give you access to a series of free online tools and a multitude of products from Internet giant Google. Gmail is one of the most used mail services (others are Hotmail and Yahoo Mail) on the Internet, either by individuals or businessmen. From my point of view, the “fame” and coverage reached by this email service happens because Google forces you to have a Gmail account to access practically all of its products. Do not see it as an obligation, since having a Google Gmail account will delight any cybernaut: access to Webmaster tools, Google Analytics, Google Maps, Google My Business, Google Trends, Google Drive and much more.
Before starting with the step-by-step tutorial so that you can register your Google account, it is best to have your name and password clear.
How to create a Gmail account or Google account
1. Access Google
In your browser open the main page of Google (www.google.com) and follow the steps that show up on your window screen. Then go to the top right and click on the “Applications shortcut button” and then on the “Gmail red envelope icon”.
2. Look for the option “Create account”
Click on “Create account” to access the page to start filling in your data.
Note: You can also access https://accounts.google.com/signup and avoid the previous step.
3. Fill in the data
In this step you have to complete the data of the registration form:
✓ Your 1st & surname
✓ Date of Birth
✓ Captcha and location.
The current telephone number and email address are NOT always required, although I recommend that you fill them in so that you can recover the Google account easily. They will send a verification code to that number or email in case of you having security problems with the password (something very common).
Note: The phone number and the captcha are verification tools that Google asks you to avoid frauds and bots
4. Read and accept the Terms and Privacy Policies
Read the terms and privacy policies of your new account and scroll down until the “I accept” button shows up and turn blue. Go ahead and click on it and finish the registration.
Finally, Google Gmail welcomes you, so you already have your new email account open and running.
Know that is not compulsory for you to read all the “Terms and Privacy Policies” before clicking on “I accept” button.
5. Review the welcome presentation to Gmail
Gmail does not leave anything to chance, so it shows you a brief presentation with all the possibilities that your Gmail email has.
6. Import your contacts and messages
This option allows you to migrate the contacts and emails that you have on other email platforms.
7. Change the image of your profile
With this option, you can upload a profile picture for your new Gmail account in an easy and fast way.
8. Enjoy your new Gmail account
Once you finish the little Gmail guide, you’ll be ready to use 100% of Gmail’s potential. Last, but not least, it’s time to inform your friends that you have a new email account. Google offers you a button for this action.
HOW TO SIGN IN TO YOUR NEW GMAIL ACCOUNT
Log in is very simple, you just have to go to Gmail and follow these steps:
1. Fill in your username
Fill in the username of your Google Gmail account.
2. Fill in the password
Fill in the password of your Google Gmail account and then click on “Login”.
