Gmail is an e-mail service provided by search engine giant Google. When Gmail was first created, users could only create a Gmail account ID if they were invited by someone else that already had Gmail, but as its popularity has increased, Gmail opened its doors to all comers. Now you can make a new Gmail e-mail address at any time, even if you already have an existing Gmail account.
- Skill level:
Launch your Web browser and navigate to gmail.com
Click on the "Create an Account" button. You can also click "About Gmail" and "New Features" to find additional information about the Gmail service.
Fill out the information on the "Create a New Google Account" page as accurately as possible. You will have to provide your first and last name, your gender and your birthday.
Choose your desired Gmail account ID, a password, a security question for the password and the answer for it.
Click "Next." If the username you have chosen is not available, Google will prompt you to enter another ID.
You will then be asked to verify your account. After doing this, your account will be created.
