Visit Gmail’s website to sign up for a free account. It is open to everyone, and the account provides access to all of Google’s services.

Signing up for a Gmail account requires your name, date of birth and gender. Create a username, which is the portion of the email address preceding the “@” symbol, and then choose a password. Provide a telephone number and current email address for security purposes, and then enter your location. Read and agree to the terms of service, enter the security code, and then submit the form. The program gives the option of creating a profile, exploring other services or continuing on to Gmail.
