It is very important to have a Google account nowadays as it comes with many benefits. First of all, you should know that a Google account allows you to log in on smartphones, tablets or computers using a single password. At the same time, Google synchronizes all the data from across all your devices, meaning that photos, documents or emails can be accessed on any handset/computer you have.
Today we will teach you how to create a Google account, but at the same time, we will also inform you about how you can delete it if you ever decide that you don’t want to use it anymore.
Why Do You Need A Google Account?
First of all, because it will make your Android smartphone more “powerful,” as you will NOT be able to download and install games or applications from the official Android store (or other applications owned by Google) if you don’t have a Google account.
At the same, having a Google Account makes your life easier when you purchase a new Android phone, as you will just need to sign in on the new device and you will have all your documents, photos as they were on your old handset.
Creating A Google Account
It is very easy to create a Google account as all you have to do is to open this Google’s Account web page and enter your personal details such as: name, birthday, username and password. At the same time, you will need to set a few security provisions and you’ll be done.
Deleting A Google Account
You will have to sign into your Google Account and head to “Account preferences->Delete your account or Services->Delete Google Account and data.” After that, you will just need to follow the instructions and you’re done.
HINT: Keep in mind that you will NOT be able to use certain Google services without an account and you will NOT be able to restore it after deleting it.
Signing In To A Google Account
Go to the Google Account Page and enter your email account and password. In case you’re using an Android device, it will ask you to sign in the first time you start it up, but after that you will be logged in unless you switch to another account.
How To Add A Google Account On Your Android Device
Head to your Android device’s Settings->Account->Add Account->Google and after that just follow the instructions (you will have to enter your Google username and password). You also have the possibility to switch between accounts whenever you want.
How To Change The Password On Your Google Account
You also have the possibility to change the Google account whenever you want to. To change the Google account password go to Sign-in & Security->Signing In To Google->Password (you might need to sign-in again). Finally, enter your new password and select “Change Password.”
What Services You Can Use With A Google Account
Anything that Google is offering can be accessed with a Google Account. This means that by having a Google Account you can use: Google Maps, Gmail, Google Drive (for cloud storage), Google Keep, Google Calendar and more.
We have to mention that Google Maps can be used by anyone, but if you sign in with your Google Account, it will remember your saved places and also sync with your Google Calendar to show your appointments on the map.
As you can see it is very important to have a Google account and this is the reason why we are suggesting you to create one right now.
