Gmail is used by a large number of people. This is a web-based email account provider owned by Google. Although Gmail is used very often, it is quite surprising that many people have difficulty in creating a new Gmail account. Therefore, in this article, we will show you how to get started with email by creating an account in Gmail. Actually, you need to create a Google account.


Now please follow below step-by-step tutorials to create a new Gmail account.


Step 1: Go to Google

Open up your internet browser and go to the Google home page: and then click on Gmail at the top right corner of the page.

go to google home page 


Step 2: Create an account

You’ll now be in the ‘Sign in’ section. As you don’t have a Google account yet, you need to create one. Now click Create an account. 



Step 3: Set-up

To sign up for a new Google account, you will need to fill in with some information about you as below image shows.

First, it requires your first and last names. The ‘choose your username’ is the unique email address that you wish to use, which will be placed before ‘’. Because it needs to be unique, Google may have to check the availability of any name that you decide on to make sure that no one already has it. Type an email name into the ‘choose your username’ box and then fill out the rest of your information.




If the email name that you requested in is not available to use, you’ll get a message saying that somebody already has that username and offering you some alternatives. You can choose to use one of the alternatives Google provides or type in another name and check its availability once more. You will have to complete some of the other boxes again. You may have to do this a few times.


Once the Gmail address is available, you’ll then need to set up with a password that you use to log in securely to your Gmail account. Google may explain that you should try one with at least 8 characters long to be secure. Use letters and numbers to make the password more secure and difficult to guess. You can add an existing email address to keep your new email secure as well.


Step 4: Verification

To get to the next steps you will need to Accept Google's privacy and terms first, once you have read it click on I Agree.



Then you will be required to verify your account via text or voice call, select the option that you want and input your phone number, and click on Continue.

Step 5: Google mail dashboard

You will be automatically redirected to Gmail's dashboard and once you have read all of the information your Gmail account is now ready to use. On the left hand side you will be able to see your inbox, sent mail and trash, you will also be able to compose emails from this list too.
