This a web page dedicated to showing the basics of how to create an email account. We will use Protonmail as an example because they are simple to use, and come with a lot of features for their free account.
When making an email account, or any account online, please consider that the data you send over the internet has a chance of being viewed.
Generally, making an account on the internet involves giving up some information for access to a service and possibly an accompanying application on the web. In the case of Protonmail, we just need to make an account name and a password.
When we’re done, we will have an email service that we can access using these credentials. We can use them on the website using the web application, or use a 3rd party email client that we trust, like Thunderbird.
Alright, let’s get started.
Create a user name for the email account and a strong password
That’s it! Now you can send and receive email. You can log in at https://protonmail.com and see a web application to help you do this.
