Google Account – What is it and what it’s used for

You need a Google account to use various apps and services from Google.  For example you can think of apps like Youtube, Google Drive, Gmail or Google Docs.

It’s also useful to have a Google account so that you can use different services for your website such as Google Ads, Google Analytics and Google Search Console. A Google account also ensures that you can easily navigate to all apps from one central point.

1) Google Account Dashboard Overview

 

Create Google Account – Manual

You can create a new Google Account in just a few minutes by following the 4 simple steps that now will be explained further.

 

Step 1 – Go to sign up page

To create a Google account you can go to the sign up page by clicking this link. Or just go to your Google browser and search for Create Google Account and then choose the first option that’s listed in the search results.

 

Step 2 – Enter details

There are two different ways to create a Google account.

The first way is to create a new account that also comes with a new Gmail address.

Another way to create a Google account is by using your current Email address. This can also be a Hotmail account for example. If you prefer this option then you can click on Use my current email address.

2) Create new Google Account options tutorial

For this tutorial, I choose the option to create a new account.

To continue you can fill in the fields with your first name and last name. Then enter the name for your Email address, this must be available and if not it will be indicated in a notification. 

After you have provided an Email address that’s available, you can enter a password for the Google account. Now click on the blue Next button to proceed.

3) Create New Google Account tutorial

Optionally you can enter a telephone number and a recovery Email address.

In this example I don’t do that because this account is only made for this tutorial to show you how to set this up, but it is recommended to do so. For example, if you have forgotten your password for your Google account, you can regain access to the account via the recovery e-mail address.

To verify the Google account, a telephone number must sometimes be entered depending if you already have a Gmail account or not.
If that’s the case you will immediately receive a text message with a verification code.

In this case that is not necessary and we can proceed to the next fields. Here you can enter your date of birth and select the gender.

Then click on Next again to continue.
