Does anyone know how to turn an alternate username in google into an actual google email account?? It tells me it's already taken when I try to create a new account, but it's presumably mine already but when I try to do account recovery it just logs me into my existing main gmail account.

  • What alternate username are you referring to? – mhoran_psprep Apr 29 at 10:21
  • If you don't know what I'm talking about then you probably can't help me lol but in gmail settings you can set an alternate username to login to your main account with. At the time I did that I didn't realize it would cause problems down the line & it cannot be removed, but I wonder if I can somehow turn it into an actual account (but I doubt it, from what I've read). – Chelsie Kane May 7 at 2:23
