Create a Google Account
You can sign up for a Google Account to use Gmail, Google+, YouTube, and other Google products that use the same username and password.
Make a new account
To set up a Google Account, go to the create your Google Account page.
You can also select the Create account link under the sign in box in the middle of any Google sign-in page.Check if you already have a Google Account
If you've signed in to any Google product before (like Gmail, Google+, or YouTube), you already have a Google Account. You can use the same username and password you created for that product to sign in to any other Google products.
If you can't remember ever signing in and would like to check if you have an account, enter your email address on the password-assistance page. If there's no Google Account associated with your email address, you'll get a message that says "Couldn't find your Google Account. Try again."
If you forgot your username or password, visit the Account support page.
If you signed up for Gmail with your Google Account, we’ll send all account-related notification emails to yourGmail address, which will be your email@example.com.
To change where you get notifications, sign in to My Account Device activity & notifications.
