Didn't receive verification email

If you haven't received your verification email:

  1. Check your Spam or Bulk Mail folders
    It's possible that the account verification email we tried to send you was caught by you email's spam or bulk mail filter. If you don't find the email in these folders, add account-verification-noreply@google.com to your address book or the list of allowed addresses on your filter, then request a new verification email.
  2. Request a new verification email
    Sign in to the Google Accounts homepage. If your account isn't already verified, you'll see a message, "Account verification needed," which will include a link to send a new verification email.

If you're unable to sign in to the Google Accounts homepage to request a new verification email, you might have entered a typo in your email address when you created your account. To check, create your Google Account again with the correct email address. If you can proceed with the account creation, the account hasn't been created yet.
