Steps To Creating a Google Account


Steps To Creating a Google Account

A Google Account gives you access to many Google products. With a Google Account, you can do things like:

  • Send and receive email using Gmail
  • Find your new favorite video on YouTube
  • Download apps from Google Play

Step 1: Create a Google Account

When you create a Google Account, we ask for some personal info. By providing accurate info, you can help keep your account secure and make our services more useful.

Tip: You don’t need a Gmail account to create a Google Account. You can use your non-Gmail email address to create one instead.

Choose a new username

  1. Go to the Google account creation page.
  2. Enter your name.
  3. In the “Username” field, enter the username you want for your account.
  4. Enter and confirm your password.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Verify your mobile phone number with the code sent through text.
  7. Click Verify.

Use an existing email address

  1. Go to the Google Account creation page.
  2. Enter your name.
  3. Click Use my current email address instead.
  4. Enter your current email address.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Verify your email address with the code sent to your existing email.
  7. Click Verify.

Step 2: Protect your account with recovery info

If you forget your password or someone is using your account without your permission, updated recovery info makes it much more likely you’ll get your account back.

  • Add a recovery phone number
  • Add a recovery email address
