Add an account on your device

To start downloading and buying items on the Google Play Store app, you need to add a Google Account on your device.

Your account can be your Gmail address or username on a Google-hosted domain. You can add more than one Google Account on your device.

Here's how to add a Google Account on your device:

  1. Open your device's main Settings menu.
  2. Under "Accounts", touch + Add account.
  3. Select Google Google.
  4. Choose Existing (if you want to add an account you already have) or New (if you want to create a new one).
  5. Follow the instructions to add your account.

After you’ve added your account, to buy items on Google play, add Google Wallet to your account by signing in to your account at wallet.google.com.

Tip: To help prevent accidental or unauthorized purchases, use password protection on your account.
