I need to start a Gmail account for a friend who does not have a computer, or a tablet, or a smart phone. He needs this for school (college), and other reasons. He can access his mail via web mail from other peoples computers, or tablets or whatever, like I did when I was temporarily homeless (in between apartments) and living at the campground in a tent for a summer. I tried to set up a Gmail account for him, but due to Google”s “one account for all” Bullcrud, it thinks the account is me, and has assigned my name to it.Is there a way I can change that, or a way i can set up an account for him that is NOT linked to me? Thanks.

why does it think its you I have setup a few accounts for people and you enter thier details and not yours you can use your mobile and email as a recovery – but otherwise its theres Unless you put ALL your details into the systemIt may remember your details on a webbrowser but thats all

*

I dunno why it thinks its me.. I created it from my computer, and I logged into it with his password and such.. and it says its me.. or maybe it just looks like its me, cause im the one logging into it.. from my computer, and I have 4 Gmail addys for running E-groups. If I go to mail.google.com its listed as one of my accounts for some reason. Doesn”t make sense to me.

where does it say that ?did you use this site to create the accounthttps://accounts.google.com/signupdid you add their name & details or yours ?I often set these up for people and just put all their details in – and sometimes use my phone and email as a recovery It will when I sign in remember the password and become part of the accounts list BUT when I log in – it does not “say its me”

*

it didn”t ask for their details.Wish this thing would let me upload the pic I just took of it instead of having to use a URL..But up in the upper right, when I logg into the account, it shows me, Bumbledor not Howards name.. is there a way i can change that?

No, haven”t gone there.. will do, hold on..Ok.. got that changed to his name.. but when he loggs on to Google mail, will it show his name, or mine in the upper right corner?
no, thats still using your email … and now just sending as a different email – change that backThe link i posted to create a new accounthttps://accounts.google.com/signupand you will need to give a NEW email address – and use his name and detailsi have deleted the image – as you dont want email shown as they may be used for spamNot as bad as putting into the forum as text – but still , dont want on an image

No, thats using the Email I created for him.. Howard Snow, . that will be his new one..Im logged into it now, only so I can get it set up.. And yes, I created it on the page you suggested.. originaly I did it that way.. thats why im confused as to why it shows me, when I log into it.Once I know it will not be associated with me, I won”t logg back into it.
You better get a new email address now because you posted his email address and the spammer will use it. Never post email address because Spam Bots will get it and spam you.
well, that didn”t answer my question.. and right now im not worried about spam.Worried about creating an account that not associated with me.

Still trying to figure out how to do it without it associating the account to me..heck, might just use it anyways.. spam can be filtered.. as for them getting his account, they goinna have a heck of a time hacking the password.
