I check Gmail every day and remove all the junk I receive from arbitrary IDs as well as newsletters and advertising emails from companies I have never signed up for. Due to the constant influx of spam, this operation may be laborious. My inbox frequently fills up with junk, and my crucial emails get lost in the chaos. Here are some simple techniques that might assist you in keeping your inbox free of spam if you struggle with unwanted emails on Gmail.
It is now simple to delete unwanted emails. Simply pick them and press the delete button. How can you, however, stop spam emails? There are a few simple ways to accomplish it as well. Here are some easy tips to stop spam emails right away if you are feeling overrun by the volume in your inbox.
Mass report and unsubscribe from spam email
- Log on to Gmail and select all the spam emails you want to unsubscribe from (make sure that you don’t select any important email ID).
- Click on the i icon at the top and you will be shown the options to ‘Report spam’ or ‘Report spam and unsubscribe’.
- Go through the list of IDs listed and if there is nothing important shown here, choose the Report spam and unsubscribe option.
- You will now stop receiving emails from these accounts.
User Gmail filters to detect spam emails
Step 1: Open Gmail and search for unsubscribe emails in the search box.
Step 2: From the opened list of promotional emails, select all the spam emails you want to get rid of.
Step 3: Click on the three dots available at the top right corner and click on ‘Filter messages like these.’
Step 4: Click on the ‘create filter’ and choose ‘delete it’ to automatically delete future emails.
Step 5: If you don’t want to delete then you can also mark them, read or apply labels to filter them from the inbox.
Use a temporary email ID
When you share your primary Gmail ID on random websites, your ID gets shared with several third parties, and you risk getting spam emails. Sometimes spam emails may look legitimate, and you might end up clicking on phishing links that could pose a risk to your personal information.
Instead of using your primary Gmail ID on all websites, you can share a temporary one.
- Visit any website that provides free temporary email IDs, such as temp-mail.org.
- Now copy the temporary email address that’s available and use this instead of your actual email ID wherever you like, and you will get the emails here instead of your actual Gmail account. Alternatively, you can create a Gmail ID meant to be used only on such websites.
- In this way, your primary Gmail account will remain safe and spam-free.
