Now use of Gmail account has been become very popular. There are large numbers of people using their Gmail account to send personal messages to each other.
Here I am going to provide you a step by step procedure to create a Gmail account.
Step 1: Go to Gmail Official Site
You may have noticed that I said go to official site of Gmail because maybe you searched for Gmail in Google and got selected another site which is similar to Gmail site.
Well, you don’t have to worry about it.
Gmail Official site is: www.gmail.com
Step 2: Click on Create an Account
Now you can see that at the right upper corner there is a red button which said: “Create An Account”.
So, all you have to do only click on that button. If you are confused see the below image.
Step 3: Fill up required details
OK, now you came to another page which is required to fill up some details.
The required fields are very easy to fill up and this will be used to show other people that what is your name & what is your Gmail account address.
The page you got to fill up will look like this as shown in below image.
If you can fill up this form yourself then you can skip this step and go to Step 4 otherwise I am going to tell you to fill up every field step by step.
First, you got to fill up your name. So, it’s not a big deal to fill it.
Let’s take the example of myself. My name is Sudesh Kumar. Hence First I will fill Sudesh and then in Last, I will fill Kumar as shown in below image.
Choose your username:
This field is required to fill up to generate your Gmail account address. You can choose any type of your Gmail address as you want.
So now maybe you are thinking that how it works/made.
Let suppose I fill up sudesh3988 then my Gmail account address will be generated as email@example.com. To choose your username you can use letters, numbers and even periods.
One more thing that I should tell you that maybe someone already has registered Gmail address as you entered here then in this case you have to choose any other username to create your Gmail account means your username should be unique.
Create a password:
This is very important part of Gmail account because with the help of this anyone can access your account without your permission.
To create a password, I will suggest that choose a very difficult password which couldn’t guess by someone. To create a difficult password, use combination of numbers, letters, and symbols also make sure that you can remember it all the time.
Also, make sure that your password contains at least 8 characters.
Let’s suppose I choose sgn56@21ND as my password so I will fill up this password in this field.
Confirm your password:
Fill up the same password as you have just filled it in above field.
Actually, this field is required to make sure that you have chosen your password in the correct manner in the above field as you want to generate it.
In this field, you have to fill up your birth date. So first select your birth month, day and then a year.
Your birthday will not be visible to anyone until you give the permission to show your birthday from your Gmail Account setting.
Let suppose my birthday is 15/04/1995 (DD/MM/YYYY). So, I will fill up this field as shown in below image.
Click on “I am…” and you will get four options to make a selection.
So, make your gender selection as what type of human being you are.
In my case, I am a boy so I will select “Male”.
Fill up your personal mobile number. It will be used to send you a verification code so that Google can verify that it’s you.
Before fill up your mobile number make sure that your mobile operator country has already selected correctly.
This mobile number will be used also to recover your password in case if you forget your password.
Your current email address:
It is an optional field to fill up means it is not necessary to fill this field.
If you have already another email address then you can fill it here otherwise you can leave it empty.
Basically, this can also be used to recover your password but if you don’t have another email address, not to worry about it, just leave it empty.
Sometimes Google detects your location to select your country automatically but if it has selected wrong then you can make your own selection.
As in my case, I live in India, So I will select “India”.
Step 4: Click on Next step
Now you have filled up all the required field. So, you are ready to click on “Next step”.
Hence without any waiting click on Next step button.
Step 5: Accept Privacy and Terms of Google
After clicking on “Next step” you will get a new popup page as shown in below image.
Step 6: All Done! You got welcome page
Congratulation! Your Gmail account has been created as you got the welcome page.
Sometimes welcome page can’t be open directly means before this it can ask for verification.
So, you don’t need to worry about it. As I said already that your mobile number will be used to verify your Gmail account. Hence all you have to do only fill up your mobile number in the given field and I am sure that it has already filled up in the given field. Click on “Continue” button and after that, you will get a verification code on your mobile number. So now enter this verification code in next given field and then click on “Continue”.
Done! You got the welcome page.
Step 7: Click on Continue to Gmail
Now you can simply click on “Continue to Gmail” to see your Inbox or other important elements.
