Gmail is fast becoming the number one email service (although it is not quite there yet), so if you are thinking of jumping ship from your current email provider then you are going to need to know how to sign up for Gmail. Fortunately this is Google, so the process is fairly simple – and with it being Google signing up for Google also gives you access to all of their other services, with the same username and password. So read on for a step by step guide.
How To Sign Up For Gmail
Step 1 -Navigate to mail.google.com, which is the official address for Gmail. You will be redirected to a sign up page that says ‘One Account, All Of Google’ – if you haven’t already signed up for them.
Step 2 -Click the ‘Create an Account’ button, underneath the sign in box.
Step 3 -Fill out all of the information, the second box down is the important one for Gmail, as it forms you email address – whatever you enter hear will have @gmail.com put at the end of it to comprise your address.
Step 4 -Once you have filled out everything (including the CAPTCHA at the bottom) and ticked that you accept the terms and conditions, click ‘Next Step’.
Step 5 -You now see a page where you can add a photo of yourself (if you desire, it is not required). Once you have done this (or not done it), click ‘Next Step’.
Step 6 -You will now see a page that says ‘Welcome, Your Name’ with some basic information about Gmail and other Google services. When you are satisfied that you have seen everything you need to see on this page, click ‘Continue To Gmail’.
Step 7 -You are now taken to the inbox, although there are a few pop ups to navigate through first. The first is a tour of Gmail’s features – if you are new you should check this out as it will make using the service easier.
Step 8 -After you have completed the tour and read the other pop ups you are now at your Google inbox and are ready to go. You will have a few welcome emails from Google to read but beyond that you are all set to send emails, and to give your friends, family & coworkers your email address so they can start filling that new Gmail inbox.
