Your username is the email address associated with your Google account. If the username you want is taken, Google will suggest alternative options.
Step 4: Create a password
Create a strong password that is at least 8 characters long and includes a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. Make sure to choose a password that is easy for you to remember but difficult for others to guess.
