How to Make a Google Account Without Gmail
Google has become something of a spectacle in recent years. Before, when you needed to create another Google account, Gmail was always included. This meant that if you needed several Google accounts, you would end up amassing several Gmail email accounts too! Now, however, there is a way to sign up for a Google account without needing to sign up for another new Gmail account.
Part 1Filling Out the Google New Account Form
Open a new web browser tab or window, and navigate to accounts.google.com/SignUpWithoutGmail.
In order to sign up without a Gmail account, you will need to enter a current email address to associate with the account. Signing up from a mobile device will follow identical steps.
You will need to fill in all the fields to create an account. These fields are First & Last Name, Current Email, Password & Confirmation, Gender, Age, Phone number, and the CAPTCHA.
The last step is to verify that you are a human not and not an automated bot. There is a checkbox that you can check so that you can do verification through your phone instead. Phone verification will send you a special text message with a code inside it. Open the text message on your phone and enter the code in the box provided on the screen when prompted.
Part 2Verifying the New Account
Because you are using an existing email account, you will need to confirm that it belongs to you. Go and check the email address that you used to sign up for your new Google account.
You should see an email in your inbox with the subject line “Google Email Verification.” Click this to open the email.
Just under “Just click the link below to verify your email address and complete your signup,” you should see a blue link. Click this, or copy and paste it into your browser address bar and hit Enter. A new browser window should open that says “Thanks for creating a Google Account. Use it to subscribe to channels on YouTube, video chat for free, save favorite places on Maps, and lots more.” There should also be a blue “Get started” button right below it. Click this and follow the instructions given.
Once you have finished signing up, everything should work as it normally does. Sign into your account using the email address you provided and the password, and visit the different Google service pages as you normally would. As you do, everything should be seamless. Enjoy your new Google account without a Gmail address!
