This means people spend about 15 hours daily all over the world trying www.gmail.com into their web browsers to access the Gmail webmail account on a typing speed of 330 characters per minute. 15 hours spend only on accessing Gmail.com sign in or sign up pages isn’t small and needs to be guided to help those who come across issues while accessing their webmail account.

4 Best Ways to Accessing Gmail without Google Search
Using Email Clients – Method 1
Desktop email clients are a great alternative if you are not familiar with webmail clients and also the type of person that checks email often. Using a Desktop email service provider will save you a lot of time from opening a browser, typing www.gmail.com in the browser tab, clicking on the login link and waiting for Gmail to log you in.
By bringing Gmail account offline to your computer, it always comes with some extra features that you can’t get on other mediums which can enhance your productivity and use of Email for whatsoever reason. There are so many good email service providers that you can use. I will be talking about that in my next post about Email Clients which you can use on your Mac, Windows or Linus devices.
Why Use Email Client Instead of www.gmail.com
- Mailbird, one of the most trusted email clients allows its users to manage multiple Gmail accounts from one window at a time and even one Unified Inbox, Another good feature you can’t do with gmail.com. This is definitely recommended for one who works with many Gmail accounts.
- In addition to what’s on ground, most email clients can work with a poor and unrealizable Internet connection, making it easier for you to check your emails at any time. This is made possible by periodically “syncing” with your account similar to how cloud storage works. In other words, the client uses your stored credentials or access “token” (a stored security string of numbers used to verify your identity and granting your application access to the webmail program, allowing it to manage your email) to access your email provider’s server, grab any new email, and send off any mail you send in the email client at once.
- There are a few other ways people use to check their Gmail accounts, including browser extensions (you can read more about browser extensions here). However, the above methods represent the most popular (and all better than typing in gmail.com) ways people access them.
2. Enter www.gmail.com in the address bar – Method 2
This method of accessing your Gmail account is the most popular among all the methods listed in this article. That’s right! Most especially if you are new to the internet and know that getting an email address is probably one of the first things you will do as you kickstart your journey on the internet. you may be surprised as well to learn that you (normally) don’t need to add that pesky “www.” when entering websites on the internet.
Most websites online today include both the www, and non-www versions in their addresses. Usually, this is the case because website owners redirect from one (either www to non-www or vice versa) depending on their choices. That’s why you might notice that sometimes a site you type in with “www” lands you on a page without www.
If this is your case, it doesn’t mean that you’ve gone to the wrong website. The website simply is set to redirect users to one or the other – www, or non-www. There are all same.
At the same time, be careful if it redirects you to another domain extension.
Example: www.gmail.com taking you to www.gmail.co or something of such.
Website ending with .com is never same with one ending with .co, .org, .net, etc, even if they bear the same name.
It’s also worth pointing out that many websites are beginning to use a more secure protocol in order to protect their sites and users. This protocol is indicated by an “https” in the browser tab. This means that the network connection between you and the website is secured and is no cause for alarm. On the other hand, in fact – you should always be cautious of entering or providing any details or logging into an account on a site without an https, or secure connection. Most times, websites without https are easier to break down when compared to websites with https

3. Installing Gmail App – Method 3
See the video below
One good thing about having the Gmail app installed in your phone is that it lets you access your Gmail email account on the go. You don’t need to login website or use PC to do that. To me, it’s my best options because it gives me flexibility option to use my email account.
4. Browser “Apps” – Method 4
Chrome browser, in particular, has a myriad of popular apps including one for Gmail. Just like a smartphone, these apps allow you to quickly and easily access and manage your Gmail email account “outside” the browser itself.
For the official Gmail app, this acts as little more than a bookmark. However, having it as an app does allow you to add some default settings such as opening it in a new browser window or as a full-screen window.
For more information on browser apps, kindly click on the settings or options menu in your browser. You should be able to find them there. else, you can search for information using any search engine (Google, Mozilla, Safari, etc).
5. Bookmark www.gmail.com – Method 5
By default, bookmarks are a great way to get one-click access for any popular sites you visit online. Arguably the most popular method for quick access to Gmail, These bookmarks live in your browser, and can even sync across all your devices where you use the same browser and browser account which is connected to your email address.
You can bookmark your Gmail inbox account by logging into your Gmail at www.gmil.com and bookmarking the inbox page. This way, you can have one-click access to your email account anytime.
A brief look into the reason behind:
Why typing out www.gmail.com into your search engine is not the best way to go about doing things as regards Gmail Email sign In.
- It’s a waste of time
Sure, you may not be wasting 15 hours a day yourself but this action can get really tedious and tiring when you’re working with multiple email accounts. Let’s say you’re a remote worker for a marketing company. You’ve been given the logins to the main email address by different brands; you have your personal email address as well as your work email address to tend to. Spending time logging in and out of all of your email addresses to manually login to each one is time you can be used to perform more important tasks, to say the least. If there is a way to get to where you need without having to type in all those “www’s” and so on, shouldn’t you take it?
- It needlessly exposes you to Ads
Search results have ads. Every time you perform a search in Google Search engine, you are opening yourself up to ads targeted at exactly what you are looking for which will distract you. These ads can even get integrated into your personal social media accounts. You just want to check your notifications, not to be distracted by useless ads getting in the way of your every move you make!
- Lastly, it can affect your browsing experience
Google keeps a record of your search history and remembers what you search for before. Furthermore, it will usually try to auto-suggest/fill possible related search terms based on what you regularly type in Google. This includes personal information like home addresses, credit card information and passwords, making it easy for somebody to gain access to your information and rip you off.
Since chances are Gmail email website is not the only website you write out including the “www” in the search results, you may notice that you are constantly presented with all your most commonly searched websites every time you begin to type in the search bar “www”, requiring you to type 4+ characters before your suggested searches are even close to relevant to what you are searching for.
To wrap it up, its best you use email clients or bookmark your Gmail page provided you are on a safe or private PC. If you’re on a public PC, don’t bookmark your Gmail email account when logged in.
