Many online users have their own Google and Gmail accounts. Is there any difference between the two? A Gmail account refers to a free Google Account with an email address ending in @gmail.com. From the Gmail mailbox, online users can access Google Calendar, Google Docs, and Google Sites. A Gmail account allows you to login into various Google applications such as Blogger, Map, and Picasa. A Google Account refers to a username and password that can be used in logging into Google applications like Search Maps, Sites, and Docs. Even if you don’t have a Gmail Account, you can still create a Google Account using any other email system such as those ending in “@yahoo.com”, “@icloud.net” or “@aol.com”,
When managing your Gmail Account, it is a relatively easy process involving changing your name, removing dots from your email, changing your email address, changing or resetting your password, clearing Google Drive space and increasing storage.

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. If you want to change or reset your password for security purposes, you can do so by signing into your ‘My Account’;,choose ‘signing into Google’ under the ‘sign-in & security’, then choose ‘Password’, sign in again if you see a prompt to sign in, and enter your new password and choose ‘Change Password’.
