We need to admit that we  all have done a silly mistake while creating our very first Gmail id and that is using adjectives like hotboy, badboy, angel, princess, demon and much more. Bummer!!! Now, as we are grown up and we need to use this id’s officially maybe in college’s placement cell, or in offices you’re working and maybe while applying for jobs you can’t use id’s like coolboyxyz @ gmail.com, or angelxyz @ gmail.com because that’s the very first point which will hit your first impression really hard.

So, here I am with the steps of solving this problem without creating a new id because the no. of accounts you’ll keep on creating, you’ll always be confused with the passwords as well.So, instead of creating another one, go for improvising you current id which will be the grownup version of yours!

On your device, open Gmail

So the first step you’ll be doing it on your laptop, system, or maybe your phone browser, “OPEN Gmail.com” and Sign In with your existing email id and password as usual.

Open Settings

After you’ve opened your account, have a look at the top right and you’ll find “settings” over there. Click on settings.
