To use Gmail, I need to create **an account __ ** Google first and then I can sign in.

In the description above, should I use the preposition "on", "to" or "for"?

  • You write an email TO someone

  • You send an email TO the editor/author of a website.

  • You set up an account WITH a company.

  • You create a Stack Exchange account
    You create an account ON Stack Exchange

  • You work FOR a company

  • You do a task or job FOR someone.

Therefore, the OP should use the preposition on in the blank

To use Gmail, I need to create an account ON Google first and then I can sign in.
