In this post, I am going to tutor you on how to create a valid gmail account for jamb. Jamb has made it a must that every candidate should create a jamb profile before registering for the examination. This jamb profile is being created online, and you would need a valid email address when creating it. I highly recommend that you should use “Gmail” for the creation of your email address, although, there are a lot of email address providers such as yahoo, AOL, fast mail, hotmail, msn, address, etcetera. Note that this is not a form of criticism. I am very sure that after reading this post, creating a gmail account would be as simple as ABC.

What is an email ?
An email is an electronic mail, a way of sending messages and data to other people by means of computers or phones connected together in a network. This network is provided by an email address provider, which I have mentioned some examples above. The one that I am actually focusing on today is the “Gmail”.
What is Gmail ?
Gmail is an email address provider owned by google. Gmail is also google-mail. It allows you to send your letters or messages to another person through the network. It is faster than the letter or message you send via the post office. The message that you send through gmail is delivered to the recipient inbox immediately. Your messages are 100% secure in your gmail account. You can read the messages in your inbox from anywhere in the world, just by signing in. Gmail has really been helpful since when it was established till date.
What do I need to create a gmail account ?
You will need some things in order for successfully create a valid gmail account, they include :
• A phone or a computer; this is very important.
• A good internet connection : You need me have access to a very good internet connection, if you are using data from another person’s phone or computer, make sure it is reliable. Also make sure that you have sufficient data enough to create the gmail account.
• A phone number : Make sure that your SIM is with you, inside your phone. You will need it when creating your gmail account, because a verification code would be sent to that number.
• A web browser; every phone or computer has a web browser, be it, chrome, opera mini, Mozilla Firefox, etcetera.
What can I use a gmail account for ?
You can use your gmail account for so many things. You can use it as a storage for your contacts, you can use it in any registration process (when filling a form), for example; you can use it when creating your jamb profile. You can also use it to send messages (it can be in form of written messages, pictures, voice notes, videos, PDF files or any document that you can think of, but it has a size limit) to your friends and families. You can also use it to apply for a job online, as you are able to send your curriculum vitae (CV) as a PDF to the company that you are applying to. You can use it to subscribe to newsletters on blogs like this one and you will receive any new posts directly into your inbox.
