So in this post I will be sharing some things you should do when you just own or bought a new android device.
1. Don’t Skip The Google Account Setup Step
Many users usually skip this step a lot due to many reasons but you should not as this very important in android, so if you have missed this step please do go back and fix it. Setting up a Google account for your android device does not necessary mean you have ti create a new account but you can simply login to your existing account if you have and if you don’t simply create one.
There are many reason why this is important,it because your android device will operate around that Google account, when you setup this, your calender, contacts, email will be arrange and working, also all your contacts will be synced in the Google account so in case you device is stolen one can easily get a backup back and don’t miss a thing.
Also if you lock yourself out of your android device, the mobile device will request for your Google account details and this is the account you created or you used when you were setting this option.
