Create New Account

Create a Gmail account

Create Gmail account. Gmail has been expanding in ubiquity since it was initially presented in 2004. With the decrease of Hotmail, AOL and Yahoo, more individuals are moving to Google’s administrations. Gmail is an email account in which messages are put away on the web as opposed to on your laptop or computer. Web email might be an adaptable alternative as you can get to messages from any computer or laptop that has internet access. Making a Gmail account is snappy and simple, and additionally allows you to get into other Google items, for example, Google Plus, Google Drive, and YouTube.

Back when Gmail was first created, believe it or not, you actually needed to get a special invitation to create a Gmail account! The new email platform was so young and experimental that they didn’t have enough resources to make it available to everyone right away. But that has changed, and now anyone can create a Gmail account without any type of special invitation or anything. Here, we have some easy instructions you can follow to create your new Gmail account.

Create Gmail account

Open the Gmail site. Click the blue “Make an account” option below the login box. This will take you to the “Make your Google Account” page. Creating a Gmail account makes a whole Google account that you can use to get to other Google items and administrations, many of which are available directly from your Gmail inbox (like cloud storage with Google Drive, etc.). You’ll see when you get there!

Think of a username. Your username will turn into your new Gmail email address. Have a backup plan or two ready on the off chance that your preferred name is now taken (the username must be unique and can’t be something that anyone else is using already). On the off chance that your username is not accessible, you will be given a few related choices, or you can attempt an alternate one. A good way to make a username unique is adding numbers to it; many people add their birth year or birth date to the end of their username.

Round out whatever remains of the required personal data. You will need to enter your first and last name, your birthday (for age confirmation), your telephone number on the off chance that you lose access to your account, and a backup email address. You likewise need to enter which nation you live in.

The cellular telephone number is recommended yet not strictly necessary. Google can send you content on the off chance that you lose access to your Gmail account, for example, a code to reset your password and regain access. It’s also a secure way to access your account if you turn on 2-step authentication for your Gmail account.

Complete the CAPTCHA. This is a “test” that guarantees that a genuine person is making the account (to prevent software robots from creating thousands of new Gmail accounts per minute). In the event that you can’t read it, click the “refresh” button beside the content field to get another one, or click the speaker icon to have it read aloud so you can hear the code through your computer’s speakers or headphones.

After you solve the CAPTCHA code, select your current area. Pick the country where you actually live, regardless of the possibility that you’re anticipating using the email somewhere else.

Your new Gmail account

Consent to Google’s privacy policy and terms of use. Take the time to peruse the whole privacy policy so you are mindful of what Google can and can’t do with your data. Check the box to indicate that you consent to Google’s terms.

Click “Next Step”. This will take you to your Google+ profile creation page. All Google accounts make a Google+ account when they are made (although this may be changing in the near future, as Google+ has not been very successful as a social network and there are rumors that it will be phased out fairly soon).

You can pick whether you might want to add a picture to your account, but it’s not necessary. And you can always skip this step now and come back to it later.

Choose whether you need your +1 data imported. This choice will tailor the Google +1 symbols you see over the web. On the off chance that you keep the box checked, you will be able to see the locales that your companions +1 on Google+ (again, for as long as it’s still available).

So, as you can see, it’s very easy to create a Gmail account!

After creating your Gmail account

Now that you’ve set up your new Gmail account, you should be taken to your new inbox automatically. There may be a welcome slide show with a little tour to get you started on how to use the most common features in the email platform. If you’ve never used Gmail before, it’s a good idea to click through the slide show – it will only take 5 minutes or so. But you can skip it if you want and figure everything out on your own.

You’ll probably also have one or two welcome emails from Google with links to additional information and tips to get started using your account.

If you want to write a new email, you can do that by clicking on the “compose” button in the upper left-hand portion of the screen. It will open a small window to write your email, meaning you can still be looking at the page you were on while also composing a message (very helpful if you need to reference another email).

Your inbox will automatically be organized into several tabs, and messages will be filtered by Google depending on where they come from. Messages that are sent from your contacts will usually go to the Primary tab, while updates from social media will go to the Social tab, etc. You can also add your own folders to keep your inbox nice and organized (for example, I have a folder specifically for online shopping receipts).

You can view and change your Gmail account settings by clicking on the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. There is an option to insert an automatic email signature, make a vacation reply, change how your emails are organized, and many other things. For most people, though, the default settings are just fine.

Other tools in your Gmail account

Up in the upper right-hand corner, next to your profile picture (if you selected one), there is another icon that looks like a set of tiles or a grid. If you click this, you’ll open a dropdown menu of the other Google tools and services that you can use with your new Gmail account.

For example, you can go to Google Drive and upload documents to your own private cloud storage account. This is helpful for freeing up space on memory cards or mobile devices, and can also be used to share large files with others and collaborate on documents, presentations, etc. Google Photos is another cloud storage tool specifically for photos, with extra functions like photo editing and automatic sync with your mobile device.

You also have access to Google Calendar, which can be linked to your Gmail for email reminders, and events can be shared with other people. If you ever notice that you get an email from someone with a day or date in it, it will often have a light-colored, dashed underline; this means that you can click on it to automatically add an event to the calendar for that day or date. It’s really convenient and intuitive.

Aside from that, you can access your Google Play account if you use an Android phone or tablet, go to Google Maps, have your own YouTube account, and much more – all from creating a Gmail account!

Create a whatsapp account

With around 1 billion people using it all over the world, WhatsApp has earned its reputation as one of the most popular chat and instant messaging apps ever created (when Facebook buys up an app, you know they must be doing something right). Downloading WhatsApp on your cell phone lets you send free, unlimited text messages, pictures, videos and audio recordings over Wi-Fi, and you can even make free calls to anywhere in the world.

Creating a WhatsApp account is a must for anyone who has friends, family or business partners in another country, since the annual subscription of just 99 cents is about a million times cheaper than an international calling and text messaging plan (and to be honest, I’ve been using WhatsApp for 3 years now and I’ve never been charged – maybe Facebook made it free when they bought it). Even if you don’t have any international contacts, though, WhatsApp is an all-around great messaging app, with a clean design and great functionality. Plus, all of your messages are secure and private (no NSA spying allowed) thanks to end-to-end encryption.

You can create a WhatsApp account in just 5 simple steps. Read on to find out how.

Create a WhatsApp account

Your WhatsApp account will be linked to your mobile phone number, so there are no usernames or annoying passwords to remember. This means that to create a WhatsApp account, you’ll have to use your phone (tablets won’t work). However, you can use other devices to access your WhatsApp via WhatsApp Web once you’ve created it on your phone.

  1. On your cell phone (Android, iPhone, Windows, BlackBerry, Nokia, Symbian), go to your OS’s usual app library, such as the Google Play Store for Android or iTunes App Store for iPhone. Search for “WhatsApp” in the search bar, or browse top apps to find WhatsApp.
  2. Download and install WhatsApp onto your phone. This may take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes depending on your network connection. The app is 100% free to download.
  3. When the installation is finished, open WhatsApp. You can do this by tapping on the “download complete” notification if you get one, by tapping “Open” from the app’s page in Play Store or the App Store, or by going to your phone’s home screen and tapping on the WhatsApp shortcut that was automatically created.
  4. Enter your country code and mobile phone number. This number will be your account identifier and will also be used to verify your account. You’ll receive a verification code by SMS to the number you entered, or you can request a phone call to verify instead.
  5. Enter the verification code you received when prompted.

That’s all you have to do to create a WhatsApp account. The next part happens automatically, when the app will scan your phone’s contacts/phonebook for any numbers that are using WhatsApp, and those numbers will be added to your WhatsApp contacts automatically. It really couldn’t be easier.

After that, you might be prompted to enter your name and choose a profile picture. You don’t really have to use your real name if you don’t want to, and there’s no rule that you have to be in your profile picture, but it’s helpful for your contacts to know who they’re talking to. You can skip the picture and come back to it later if you prefer.

Notes on using your WhatsApp account

WhatsApp’s biggest attraction is the ability to send free messages and make free calls over a Wi-Fi connection. Remember though, just like with any app, if it can’t find any Wi-Fi to connect to it will try to use mobile data instead (unless you have mobile data turned off on your device). This can cause data charges depending on your plan.

To use your WhatsApp messenger on other devices, like a tablet or your PC, you can use WhatsApp Web. The catch is that you have to already have the mobile account created – you can’t create an independent account using WhatsApp Web, it just mirrors the one on your phone.

All you have to do is use the browser on your computer or tablet and go to web.whatsapp.com. You might have to select “request desktop site” if you’re using a tablet for this to work. What you should see is a QR code on the screen. You’re going to scan the code through the WhatsApp on your phone to link the two devices. To do that, open the menu in WhatsApp on your phone (usually three dots) and tap “WhatsApp Web”. This should open a special scanner that you will use to scan the code on your other device’s screen.

The code is time sensitive, so if it doesn’t work the first time, you just need to refresh the page with the code to get a new one.

Now you’ll be able to see everything in your phone’s WhatsApp on your PC or tablet, too. This is nice if you want to be able to use a real keyboard, or see multimedia files on a bigger screen.

Other than that, everything in WhatsApp is pretty straightforward and easy to figure out. You can explore the menu options to change things like when to backup your chats, which types of files to back up, etc. You can also change your profile picture and edit a status that will show up next to your name in your friends’ contact lists.

How to Create a Facebook Account

Facebook, Facebook , Facebook – it seems like it’s everywhere, doesn’t it? Practically everyone is using Facebook; for example, while I was waiting at the train station, a 19-year-old boy beside me was chatting. A girl was reading some posts and laughing from time to time. On the train, an older man asked me what these kids were doing, so I told him that they were on Facebook. He seemed intrigued and asked me for more information about Facebook. He was really interested in making an account and I told him that I could make one for him, but he preferred to make it by himself. So I got his email and promised to send him a detailed explanation about how to set up his Facebook account. He was able to create his new account in just a few minutes and was very thankful for the tutorial I had written him. If you are interested in making your own Facebook account, too, then I think you will find this guide helpful as well.

Create a Facebook Account

First, go to Facebook main web site by typing in the address bar, www.facebook.com or simply search for it on Google search. This is the screen that will show up:

facebook address
We see the following screen

facebook home

Facebook makes creating a new account very easy since it displays the sign up page as the home page. (Note: if someone is already logged into Facebook on your computer, you will have to log them out before you can create a new Facebook account for yourself. You can do this by clicking on the down arrow in the upper right-hand corner of the page, and then selecting “log out”.)

Fill in your personal information; you will need to enter your first and last name, an email address or a mobile number, create a new password (try to choose a password that is easy for you to remember, but hard for other people to guess), your birthday and finally your gender.

It’s very important that you enter a valid email address or mobile number as you will receive a confirmation code there to set up your Facebook account. You will also use it to reset your password in case you forget it. Also, when creating your password, try to use a combination of capital letters, lowercase letters and numbers so that it is as secure as possible. And as a final note, your age should be over 18 years to be legal to have an unrestricted account.

After filling in all the required data, click “Sign Up”.

After you click “sign up”, Facebook will ask you if you want to add friends through your email. Facebook will sync all of your contacts in this email to if any of them use Facebook and allow you to send them friend requests. You can add friends through Yahoo, Gmail, Hotmail and any other email service you want to add. It is a very convenient way to start building your Facebook friends list, but if you want to skip this step, just tap “Next”.

facebook2

In the next step, Facebook will ask you to upload your profile picture. While you can technically add any photo, it is preferable to add a clear photo of yourself at the beginning so that your friends and family recognize you. In this same step, Facebook will ask you again to add friends via the email address you entered in the first step. It will also offer to give you a tour of your privacy settings to adjust them or just become familiar with your options. Facebook does change their privacy options and default settings from time to time, so it’s a good idea to take this tour so you know what’s what.

facebook3

Upload your desired photo by clicking “Add Picture” and choose one from your computer, or click “Take a Photo” to take a new one with your webcam.

You may also be asked to upload a “cover photo”, which is a large, widescreen picture that will go at the top of your profile. This picture can be basically anything you want (within Facebook guidelines, of course) – some people put another picture of themselves, maybe with friends or family, while other people put pictures of other things or places that are meaningful to them.

After creating your Facebook account

That’s it! Congratulations, you can now use your Facebook account to keep in touch with contacts all around the world, send messages and share your news with everyone you love.

Your account is all set up, but if you want to make it easier for people to find you, you’ll want to add in some information on your profile. If you are in your “news feed”, you can always access your profile (the one your friends can see) by clicking on your name in the upper right-hand corner. To edit or add information, click on “About”, or use any of the suggested links in the sidebar (if available).

Here, you can set whether you want your birthday to be displayed publicly (your friends will have a notification on their newsfeed when it’s your birthday if you leave it public). You can also add the city that you live in, your home town, any other cities that you’ve lived in – the point of this is to make it easier for people to find you, especially if you have a common name. Same goes for adding where you went to school, jobs you have worked at, etc.

You can also add and edit relationship information, like choosing your relationship status, and tagging contacts who are related to you. If you want to meet new people with similar interests, you might be interested in filling in things you like: music, movies, books, artists, athletes, personal heroes, favorite quotes, etc. And for those of you who like to get everything out in the open, you can even add important life events to your timeline/biography.

All of this is optional, of course, and you can choose who is able to see it from the privacy settings we talked about earlier.

Once your profile/timeline is all set up with all the information you want to share, you can start seeing what your friends are up to in your newsfeed. Facebook has a formula to decide what will appear in your newsfeed (partially based on the things/friends that you interact with most often), which sort of gives you an overview of the latest posts from your contacts in your Facebook account. You can see what any friend in particular has posted by going directly to their profile, where you can also see their photos, information, etc.

Create Telegram Account

The super-secure, super-fast instant messenger app known as Telegram just continues to grow in popularity. Considering that everyone’s worried about government surveillance these days (and there are plenty of countries in the world where that is a very valid concern), it’s no wonder that Telegram is catching on so quickly. To give you an idea of what we’re looking at here, the app was started by two brothers in Russia who wanted a way to communicate without the Russian government being able to spy on them – and thus, Telegram was born.

create telegram account

Why create a Telegram account?

The free messaging app’s extra security features have even inspired major competitors like WhatsApp to make changes to their own apps. For example, Telegram has been offering a “secret chat” feature for years, which among other things used end-to-end encryption, meaning that the messages sent would never set foot on the app’s servers and would be almost impossible to intercept in transit. Well, if you’re a WhatsApp user, you may have noticed that as of a few months ago, whenever you start a new chat with someone, it informs you that your messages are being sent using end-to-end encryption.

There was also a bit of a hullabaloo when people discovered that they were unable to send a Telegram invitation link via Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. So suffice it to say, Telegram has something to offer, and it’s something important enough that even Facebook is feeling threatened.

To use this unique chat application, you’ll need to sign up for a Telegram account. But don’t worry; as you would expect from an app that sees security as its top priority, very little personal information is required and most of it is kept private even from your contacts.

How to create a Telegram account

If you have an iPhone or Android smartphone, go to your usual app market and search for “Telegram”. It should pop up as the first result. Download the application to your device just like you normally would (the app is 100% free to download and use, no subscription fees or anything like that). After the installation is finished, tap on the icon to open Telegram.

The welcome screen has a link at the bottom that says “Start Messaging”, which is what you need to tap on to get started with the Telegram sign up process. On the next screen, you need to enter you mobile phone number and double check that the country code is right. Like with most chat apps, the number will be used to send a verification code via text message. There are ways to do this without using your real phone number (Google Voice, for example), but that’s beyond the scope of this article.

Once you get the code, type it in to verify your phone number. On the next screen, you can enter your name and select a profile picture. There’s no rule that says you have to use your real name here; it depends on how easily you want your contacts to be able to recognize you.

And that’s it as far as creating your Telegram account goes. All that’s left is choosing whether or not to sync your phone’s contacts, invite more people, etc.

  • Hotmail Account

Hotmail Account

Does Hotmail even still exist? Yes, it does! Although many people aren’t aware of it – you see, Microsoft has been cleverly rebranding and re-rebranding Hotmail ever since they bought it in the late 1990s. These days, their official web email platform Outlook.com is what provides the Hotmail service, so you won’t necessarily see the word “Hotmail” blazoned all over the sign up page, but they are the same thing. As of this writing, you still have the option to choose an email address that ends in Hotmail.com instead of Outlook.com, although it’s not clear if this option will be phased out in the future.

So if you want to create a Hotmail account and ensure that your email address actually says “Hotmail”, it might be wise to get on that as soon as possible. Lucky for you, it’s a really easy sign up process that won’t take more than 5 minutes on the computer. You can even do it on the Outlook mobile app, if you prefer. Here are some instructions that you can follow to make sure you can sign up for a Hotmail account without running into any speedbumps or confusion.

Hotmail Account

Hotmail account

If you’re going to be signing up for Hotmail account on the computer, start by opening up your preferred web browser, and typing “Hotmail.com” into the address bar. Now, the website that you will be taken to will not say “Hotmail” in the URL, and it probably won’t have the word Hotmail anywhere on the page. That’s okay – remember what I said about re-rebranding? What you’ll most likely see is “Live.com” in the URL, “Outlook” as the name of the page, and “Microsoft” as the type of account. Don’t worry, you’re in the right place.

Click on the link to create a new account, which should be underneath the log in box. In the sign up form, type in all the necessary information, like your first and last name, birthday, country, etc. It’s also strongly recommended that you provide a mobile number or at least a backup/secondary email address. These can be used to add an extra layer of security to your Hotmail account and will also be helpful if you ever forget your password.

You’ll have to choose a unique email address for your new Microsoft/Hotmail account, meaning it can’t be an email address that anyone else is using. Now, this next step is very important if you want a real Hotmail account and not an Outlook one: find where it says “@outlook.com” after your chosen email handle, and click the little arrow to open up the menu of options. One of your choices should be “@hotmail.com” – find it and click on it to select.

Now all you have to do is pick a password to log in to your new Hotmail account in the future anytime you want to check your email, use OneDrive, Skype, etc.

Finally, prove that you’re a real human by entering the code you see into the box, agree to all the legalese, and click on “Create account” to finish setting up your new Hotmail account.
