Google Accounts basics

Google Accounts is a unified sign-in system that gives you access to:

  • Free Google products, including Gmail, Google Groups, Picasa, Web History, and more.
  • AdWords and Google Checkout.

If you've used any of these products before, you already have a Google Account. To try new Google products, simply sign in with your existing Google Account. Your account username is the email address you entered when you created your Google Account. If you use Gmail, sign in with your Gmail username.

If you don't have a Google Account, you can create one now.
