Setting up a Gmail account can be an easy process that most can do within a matter of minutes, enabling them to get a reliable and relatively simple to use email address for all their daily needs. This guide will walk you through the steps of easily setting up your own personal Gmail account.
The first thing you need to do when getting a Gmail account is to go to mail.google.com . If you don’t have a Gmail address already this will take you to the Gmail sign in page where you are given the option to sign in or create an account in the top right corner of the page.
The next step is to click on the Create an account button located in the top right corner of the page, this will take you to the first step of creating your personal Gmail email address. (see the red arrow in the above picture in order to see where you need to click)
When you’ve gotten to the create an account page you will need to fill out the needed information in a form with your information in order to create your account.
The information needed to create your account is:
- First and last name
- Chosen username
- The password you would like to use
- Your Birthday
- Your gender
Once you have filled out all needed information you need to type in the text verification and then the final thing that you need to do is to click the Next Step button located at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on the button pointed to by the red arrow in the image below will take you to the Gmail welcome page.
At the Gmail welcome page all you need to do is read the page and then click Continue to Gmail. At this point you now have your own personal Gmail account ready to be used for your day to day internet browsing, your work, and your family emails.
Now Gmail will give you some helpful information to get started and you can begin using your email as you wish, customizing your page and setting filters to make sure that you only get the emails you want to receive, and all others are filtered out in order to clear spam. Once you finish with the help (or exit the help page if you don’t want to deal with it) you are completely set up and ready to go!
