• Setting up a Gmail account

1. To participate in the clinical evaluation, we’ll first need to set up an anonymous Gmail account by visiting this page. Click or tap the ‘Create Account’ link when you’re there.

Navigate to the Google Sign up page here: https://accounts.google.com/SignUp?hl=en-GB or visit the Gmail sign in page and click 'Create Account'.

2. When signing up, choose a username that doesn’t personally identify you and uses the format ‘ProjectB***@gmail.com’. For the ‘First name’ and ‘Last name’ fields, please also make sure that you don’t enter your real name. See the example below for a guide.

3. Having agreed to the terms, click ‘Create Account’. Once finished, you can either access this email account via a web browser like Chrome or Safari, or if you prefer, you can download the Gmail app and login with your username and password.

4. When you first log in to your new Gmail account, you should see a welcome email, like this:

5. Using this email account, send an email to papworth.projectbreathe@nhs.net. In the email, it’s important to let us know what kind of phone you wish to use with Project Breathe – Android, or iPhone. We need this information so we can send you  a link to the right version of the app for your device. (Note that you won’t be able to find the app in either the Google Play or Apple App Stores.)

6. Within 48 hours, you will receive an email with a link enabling you to download and install the Project Breathe app.
