A2X uses Google Accounts for account login and security.  A Google account like a FaceBook or Yahoo account, is a way for a trusted 3rd party service to provide account logins for A2X. You can sign up for a free Google account using any email address you like, or if you wish you can sign up for a Google account and get a free gmail address at the same time. In this article we will show you how to create a Google account using your own email address.

If you already use Google to host your email service for your business or company (Using Google Apps or G Suite) then your email account is already a Google Account and you can use it to log in directly to A2X - you do not need to create a new Google account.

Not everybody has a gmail address or wants one so how can you benefit from the security that a Google login provides?

Follow these steps to create a Google accounting using your own email address:

1. Go to a2xaccounting.com

2. Click “Sign up” 

3. Choose “Sign in with Google”

4. Next, you will see this:

5. Proceed with “Create account”.

Don't worry.  You don’t have to actually create a gmail account.  You can still connect through Google using your own email account.  

Here’s what you will see next:

6. Next, fill in the form.  You'll get a pop up:

7. Click "I AGREE"

8. Then verify your email address: 

That's it!  You can use your email address now and still benefit from Google's secure sign in.
