Log in to Your Gmail Account
- Go to Google’s email login page: https://mail.google.com/, or simply open up your favorite web browser and type Gmail.com
- Enter your email address in the “Email” field located in the center of your screen.
- Now enter your password in the second field.
- Click “Sign In”.
If you go to the sign in page and the username is filled in already with an email address that does not belong to you, then click on “Sign in with a different account” or “Add account” to enter your login credentials in the required fields.
Google says that you should sign out of your Gmail account if you accessed it on a public or shared computer. And to increase your account’s security even more Google recommends using private browsing when you access your account on a private or shared computer, but if private browsing isn’t available you should clear cache, the browser’s history, and cookies before and after signing in to your account.
Google strongly suggests that you should not sign in to your Google Account if you can’t use private browsing or clear the browser’s history, cache, and cookies. But if it’s absolutely necessary to sign in and you decide to go ahead with it anyways make sure to deselect the “Stay signed in” checkbox in case you forget to log out.
