Not so long ago registration on Gmail
could only be done through invitations from users who already had a verifiable web account with Gmail. The situation has now changed as there are no restrictions on who can sign up on Gmail
. A Gmail account can be created through a Google account
if one already exists. If there is no preexisting Google account, a Gmail account can be opened by following the registration process.
Creating a Gmail account
Connect to https://www.google.com/
, simply click on Gmail
Two possible scenarios are possible:
You already have a Google account
: Simply enter your username and password to access Gmail through your Google account. Click Login
You do not have a Google account
: Click Create an account
. An online form appears.
Fill in all the fields, then read the conditions of use. Finally, select the Check this box to confirm that you have read and accepted all the conditions of use...
and click on the button Next step
. In the introductory page of the service that appears, click on the link I am ready to use my account
. Gmail is ready for use!
