During routine maintenance, a number of users were signed-out from their Google accounts. If you were affected, please sign back in using your usual username and password at https://accounts.google.com. If you can’t remember your password or can’t sign in for another reason, recover your account password here. For security reasons, our support agents are unable to assist with password issues.

Adding Gmail

If you add Gmail to your Google Account, your account's primary username will permanently change to yourusername@gmail.com.

After you add Gmail, the original email address associated with your account will become your alternate email address. If you have verified your original email address before adding Gmail, you will be able to sign in using this email address.

Adding Gmail to an existing Google Account

  1. Go to mail.google.com.
  2. Click Create account.
  3. Fill out the form and follow the sign-in steps.
