Create a Google Play Account

You need to go to the section where it says Create a new account. Click on it and write your name, the next prompt will let you decide on a name. Take your time as more options might already be used by others. The next step is choosing a passcode, make it a hard one, adding your mobile number is always a good alternative, you never know what might happen to your account and thus the phone number will help you retrieve it securely. The latter number can also be used for getting the code that will grant you access to your account if the passcode has slipped you mind.

The only thing left to do is agree to the terms and conditions imposed by Google. In front of you, there should be the summary page of your entire account as well as Google’s services. You can click on the Next prompt and then decide if you want Google to save all of your phone’s settings, apps and more, the next step is the payment prompt, so keep on reading the second tip-off.
