Connecting to Google Mail from a Windows Device

To set up your Google Mail on a Windows device, you will first need to enable Google's 2-Step Verification for your Google Mail account. Once you enable this security feature, you will need to set up an App Password for Google to authorize your Windows device. You will only need to use this App Password upon the initial set up of your Google Mail account. If you cannot create an App Password, you may need to turn on access to less secure apps located at the bottom of your account's "Sign-in & security" page. 

  1. On your Windows device, swipe left to view your apps list.
  2. Tap [Settings] > [email + accounts] > [add an account] > [advanced setup].

Additional Google App Services for Android Devices

Cedarville Google Apps offers some additional services for Android devices. From your personal computer, you can locate your device if lost, wipe your device remotely, and make your device ring. 

To activate these Google Android services:

  2. In the search bar, search for "Device Policy" and install the "Google Apps Device Policy" app.
  3. Once installed, open the app and locate your Cedarville email address at the top of the screen. If it is not there, select your Cedarville email address from the drop-down menu. 
  4. Tap [Next] > Tap [Activate]. The device will then warn you of the policies that you are about to activate.
  5. Tap [Enforce]. The device will talk to Google's serves, and then you will receive confirmation that it is working or that the device was successfully synced.
  6. To access Google's Android services on your computer, open a browser and navigate to http://www.google.com/apps/mydevices.
