With the advent of digital technologies, more and more people are using the internet, and millions of people have their own mail and Google accounts. But what are the difference between the two? A Gmail Account refers to a free type of Google Account with an email address ending in @gmail.com. From your Gmail mailbox, you can access Google Docs, Google Sites, and Google Calendar. A Gmail account allows you to login into various Google applications such as Blogger, Map, and Picasa. On the other hand, a Google Account refers to the username and password used in logging into various Google applications like Maps, Sites, Docs, and Search. Google Accounts do not necessarily end with “@gmail.com”, it can be any other email addresses such as those ending in “@yahoo.com” or “@aol.com” that can be edited, created, and collaborated on Google application without needing to use the Google Email system.

If you want to change your Gmail Account’s email address, you have to sign up for a new address and once you are signed up, you can transfer your contacts and emails from your old address to the new one. When changing or resetting your password for security reasons or if you forget it, you can follow these steps: sign into your ‘My Account’; choose ‘signing into Google’ under the ‘sign-in & security’; choose ‘Password’; sign in again if you see a prompt to sign in; enter your new password and choose ‘Change Password’.
