Introduction

In this article, you will learn how to automate the Gmail sign-up process to optimize your workflow.

Gmail is the email service offered by Google. To access your Gmail every time, you need to manually enter a valid username and password. Moreover, apart from Gmail, this login also enables you to access other Google apps as well.

But have you ever wondered about implementing automation for signing into your Gmail? Well, fortunately, there is an option. It will save you time from entering login credentials every time. 

Manage automated Gmail sign-in using Google Password Manager

Using Google Password Manager, you can automatically sign in to Gmail, other Google apps, connected third-party apps, and sites. You need to go through some simple steps to enable this feature in Google Workspace. Let’s see how it happens–

  1. Open Google Chrome from your computer.
  2. Then, click More > Google Password Manager from the top right corner.
  3. Click Settings from the left.
  4. Next, turn on Sign in automatically.
  5. After that, go Passwords from the left menu of the Password Manager.

Automated Gmail sign-up process by recording the workflows

There is another way to sign up automatically in Gmail. You can record the whole login process for Gmail through a web recorder. So, before entering your credentials, you need to turn on that recorder. Then, you have to enter your Gmail address and password on the Gmail login page and click the Sign in button. The recorder will save these actions, and you can use the recording as a script or reusable command. So, you can run this script when you sign up for Gmail next time. 

Also, you can use automation platforms like Automation Anywhere to utilize this automation process. Google Workspace Marketplace offers this app.
