How to set up your new Google account on your laptop or PC

Setting up a new Google account is basically the same on your phone or computer, but it actually feels easier on your PC or laptop since you have to go through fewer screens:
  • Go to the Google signup page in your preferred web browser.
  • Enter the username and password you want to use for your account. Remember that your username will become your Gmail address.
  • Retype your password in the Confirm Password field. This helps ensure that you don't mistype your password and lock out your new account.
  • Then click on the Next option.
  • Enter your date of birth and gender. Keep in mind that Google has minimum age requirements to create an account, and in order to use Google Pay or add a credit card, the account holder must be at least 18 years old.
  • If desired, enter a backup phone number and/or email. This data can be used to help you verify your identity or log in to your account if you forget your password, but it is not required.
  • Then, click on the Next option.
  • Google will show you the terms, conditions, and privacy policies for your Google account. Once you've read everything, click Agree.
