Not so long ago Gmail
registration could only be done through invitations from users who already had a verified Google web account. This rule has since changed, allowing anybody to sign up to Gmail with limited restrictions.
Gmail accounts can be created through a user's Google account
if one already exists or by completing Gmail's simple registration process.
Create a Gmail Account
Open your web browser, and go to the Google
homepage. Then, click the Gmail
option located in the toolbar:
From here, two possible scenarios are possible depending on your account status. If you already have a Google account
, simply enter your username and password to access Gmail through your Google account. You can do this by clicking Login
If you do not have a Google account
, click Create an account
. An online form will appear asking for your basic information:
Fill in all the fields and read the terms and conditions. Finally, select the Check this box to confirm that you have read and accepted all the conditions of use...
, and click Next step
. In the introductory page of the service that appears, click I am ready to use my account
to finalize your registration.
Gmail vs. Google vs. Google Plus
In creating a Gmail
account, you automatically create a Google
account, which allows you to access other personalized services such as YouTube
, and Google Plus
, Google's social network.
How To Access Your Gmail Inbox
As soon as you have registered in Gmail
, you will be directed to your inbox. There, you will see that you have already received your first email: a welcome email from the Gmail team.
At the top of your inbox, you'll see that three tabs have been created for you to help you in your email management: Home
, Social Networks
. These filters are not mandatory — Gmail offers its users many options for inbox customization, including creating customized filters and labels as well as a personal signature
. These options may be found in your account settings
