How to Create a Gmail Account For You in 5 Easy Steps

Creating Your Gmail Account

Creating your Gmail Account is easy! Simply head on over to the Gmail sign-up page, input your name, email address and password and submit.

Once you've submitted the form you'll be sent an email from Gmail confirming that your account has been created.

Once you confirm your account via the confirmation link within this email, your Gmail account will be created.

Now it's time to configure your Gmail account settings so it suits your needs.

Configuring Your Gmail Account

Now that you have an email account for yourself, it's time to configure Its settings so it meets all of your needs.

  • First off, change your security setting to show your primary email address instead of Google Accounts.

  • You can do this by going into the Accounts and Import tab under the My Account tab then clicking on Edit next to Primary Email.

  • Next, set up two-step verification using either a text message or physical token generator application (note: if you use text messages then make sure they are not routed through international SMS).

Logging into your Gmail account

  1. Click on the Mail app and sign into your email account.
  2. Type your email address and password.
  3. Select the Create An Account option if you don’t have an existing Google account that you want to use with this email account.
  4. Enter the password for your new account and confirm it. Your new email address is now being created!
  5. If you already have a Google account, go ahead and enter the login information for that account. If not, create one by entering your name, birthday, gender, country or region (or where you live), language (language), mobile phone number, and alternate email addresses to receive confirmation messages.
  6. That's it! Your account is ready to use.

Adding extra security

To really protect your Gmail account and make it even more difficult for cyber criminals to get your account password, you will want to add extra security.

One way is to have a challenge question that you have given yourself or had someone else give you so that if you ever forget your password and can't answer the security question, they can reset your password.

Make sure the answer isn't something simple like your name or phone number because hackers could easily figure out those answers and sign into your account!

Choosing your preferences

There are also various settings for your new account, but the default settings should work fine for most people. If you want more control over what emails you get from what sources, feel free to explore those settings now or later.

When you're done setting up your new account, click on the Start Mailing button. This will make sure that Google begins sending and receiving emails on your behalf while you set up other email accounts.

Next, you'll need to create an email address with Yahoo!, AOL, Hotmail or any of the many other providers out there. It's easy enough: just go to one of these websites and sign up for an account! Once you've created your new email address with one of these providers, go back to Gmail Settings.

and enter your Yahoo!, AOL, Hotmail etc., login information so that it can send and receive emails on your behalf as well.

Adding recovery email address

Google recommends adding at least one recovery email address, so if your password is ever forgotten, you'll be able to reset it and gain access back to your account. To add a recovery email address:

  1. Go to Settings and click on Security.
  2. Scroll down and click on Add another email.
  3. Enter the desired recovery email address and click Next Step.
  4. Verify that the information for this email is correct and click Done Setting Up Another Email Address.
  5. Click Done On The Main Sign-In Screen And Exit Incognito Mode (or just sign out of Chrome).
