Check when you Created your GMail Account

GMail Account Creation Date
It's been 6 years :D

Ever felt the need to know when you had filled up the sign-up form for GMail ? Perhaps, GMail was invite-only when you signed up for your first Google Mail id. It probably were the good old days of GMail BETA.

To start with, I would like to make it clear that there is no special page (reserved) for checking the account creation date. But we sure can check it How ?, just follow the steps listed below.

  • Login to your GMail Account and Select the Settings option from the GMail Toolbox dropdown (located at the extreme right).
  • Navigate to the ‘Forwarding and POP/IMAP‘ tab in that page.
  • Now in the POP Download section you’ll see a similar message “1. Status:ย POP is enabledย for all mail that has arrived since 1/26/06“.
  • The date in that message indicates when you created your GMail account.

  1. I don’t know if I will ever need to know this, but still an interesting find. I might help you track how Google has changed over the years since you joined.

  2. Well I am using Gmail from Twenty Ten ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Interesting I have been using mine for 12 years now.

  5. cool i was created my gmail account on march 2007 and thanks for posting this wonderful tip ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Very interesting. I will try to find when I created mine. Thanks

  7. Sure is great to know that the very first time I signed up for gmail was way back in 2005. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing this cool tip!

  8. Wow, that is very cool. I had no idea you could do that. I’ve been using mine since 07 which is interesting because I thought it was longer than that. thanks for this cool tutorial

  9. Well, this doesn’t seem to work for me. I know I have been using Gmail since 2004, but it says 2007 ๐Ÿ˜›

  10. Dude, this trick won’t work because you can change the POP setting.

    If I disable someday in between and then enable after sometime, then it will show me the date on which I enabled POP.
