Sony Xperia X account
Your Sony Xperia X device from Sony runs on the Android platform developed by Google. A range of Google™ applications and services is available on your Sony Xperia X when you purchase it, for example, Gmail, Google Map, YouTube and the Play Store application, which gives you access to the Google Play online store for downloading Android applications. To get the most out of these services, you need a Google account. For example, a Google account is mandatory if you want to:
• Download and install applications from Google Play.
• Synchronise email, contacts and the calendar using Gmail.
• Chat with friends using the Hangouts application.
• Synchronise your browsing history and bookmarks using the Google Chrome web browser.
• Identify yourself as the authorised user after a software repair using Xperia X Companion.
• Remotely find, lock or clear a lost or stolen device using the my Xperia X or Android Device Manager services.

It is crucial that you remember your Google account username and password. In some situations, you may need to identify yourself for security reasons using your Google account.
If you fail to give your Google™ username and password in such situations, your device is locked. Also, if you have more than one Google™ account, make sure to enter the details for the relevant account.
