There are several methods to log into your Gmail account without going through the time consuming ways. We know you are frustrated with all the troubles you have to face before you can truly log into your Gmail account.
The Correct Gmail Login Page
We have to clarify that this website is a tech blog and we do not represent Gmail or Google. We are writing this to assist people who have problems with logging into their Gmail Account and provide them with important things they should know about securing their Gmail account.
First and foremost, you have to know that the only correct and genuine Gmail login page’s URL is WWW.GMAIL.COM (or mail.google.com). You will have to type that onto your browser address bar and hit enter to access to the Gmail sign in page. You cannot simply enter phrases such as “Gmail login” in the hope to access to your Gmail account because your browser will most likely perform a search on the phrase you have entered and show you a list of irrelevant results instead of directing you to the Gmail login page. (I guess that is also why you are here in this page.) Many people especially the old folks and the non-computer-geeks do not know this. So, to access to a specific website, it is better to enter the website’s url instead of going via the search result page.
Double check the URL again when you land on the Gmail.com login page to see if it is still the correct one. Some adware or spyware will cloak the original url you’ve entered and bring you to a completely different page but with the same layout as the Gmail login page so that you would enter your gmail account details and then steal your account. You will have to be very careful with this. If you have ever enter gmail login details on any of these suspicious malicious websites, change your Gmail password immediately. Always check the URL and see if it is www.Gmail.com (capitals doesn’t matter tho).
Gmail Log in From Phone or Tablet
There are literally 3 ways you can login to your Gmail account on a smart phone or tablet.
- Visiting www.gmail.com login page via a browser (such as Chrome) on your phone.
- Via a third party email app which requires you to pre-enter your Gmail login details.
- Via the official Gmail App (the most recommended way).
To be on the safe side, we recommend you to only login to your Gmail account via the official Gmail App. In any android device, by default, there will be a pre-installed Gmail App on your app list. If you are unable to find it, go to the Google Play store and search for Gmail to download the Gmail App. As for iOS iPhone or iPad users, you will have to head to the Appstore to look for the Gmail App. Make sure the app is developed by Google, Inc and not some third party software companies.
Problems with signing in or accessing to your Gmail account
If you are unable to login to your Gmail account even on the correct Gmail login page, it could be one of the few most common reasons. It’s either your Gmail account has been compromised or hacked, your account has been banned, or that you simply forgot your Gmail login password.
The very first thing you should do is to try resetting your Gmail account password. You can do this by clicking on the “Need help” link on the Gmail login form (right below the password field) and follow the on-screen instructions.
If none of the instructions helps, you can further troubleshoot your problem on the Gmail Help page https://support.google.com/mail/?hl=en#topic=3394144, or head to the forum to look for help at https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/gmail.
