There are things that we take for granted or for granted. And many of them don't have to be. Every day countless emails are sent through Gmail, but that does not mean that, today, there are still people who do not know how to create a Gmail account from scratch. And that's what we are for..
To create a Gmail account from scratch we first need to have a Google account. If we do not have it, we must follow the following steps.
How to create a Gmail account from scratch
If we don't have a Google account , we have to create one. Without it it is impossible to have a Gmail account. And not only from Gmail, but from any service of the great company, such as YouTube, Calendar, Drive, etc. Creating a Google account is extremely easy..
First, we have to decide which account we want, personal or corporate. Here we can choose it by clicking on the corresponding box.
Next, we will fill in all the fields that are presented to us. In the password box , we must make sure to put one that combines different types of characters (uppercase and lowercase letters, asterisks, numbers, etc.). One page that can help us create a strong password is, for example, Lastpass..
The username of our Google account will be the same as for the Gmail account. Let's try to keep the name serious , especially if we want this email account to be for all kinds of uses, personal and professional.
On the next screen we will put, if we want, the phone number (it is useful, especially when we change phones or when we forget the password) and an email account of someone we trust. If we ever need to access the Google account and cannot, the access instructions would send us to that address.
Later, we will put our date of birth and sex . Then, we will click on 'Next'.
We advise, from the start, to choose the first option. Later, we may change the personalization of ads and content . Once this is done, a new screen will appear with additional information, which we will have to accept, and then another with the conditions of use. We also accept. Finally, if everything has gone as it should, this screen should appear:
Clever. we already have our Gmail account. Now, we enter the link to see our email , which will show a new pop-up screen.
We select the option we prefer and that's it, we already have our email account active and we can send and receive messages correctly.
