Take the new Security Checkup. Strengthen the security of your Google Account in 2 minutes.

Create a Google Account

You can sign up for a Google Account to use Gmail, Google+, YouTube, and other Google products.

Make a new account

To set up a Google Account, go to the create your Google Account page.

On any Google sign-in page, you can also select More options and then Create account.

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. If there's no Google Account associated with your email address, you'll get a message that says so. 

If you forgot your username or password, follow the steps to recover your account.

Check where email notifications are sent

If you signed up for Gmail with your Google Account, we’ll send all account-related notification emails to your Gmail address.

To change where you get notifications, sign in to My Account and then Your personal info and then Email.
