Gmail address hacks
Three useful tips for Gmail:
- If you can guess someone’s email address, you can verify it by typing it into Gmail. If the popover box appears with the person’s name (even better: their photo), the address is verified.
- Gmail apparently ignores dots in @gmail.com addresses, so email@example.com is the same account as firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You can use the “+” sign in your Gmail name and add anything you want, e.g. email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a great way to see and restrict how your email address is used. This also works with GSuite/Google Workplace custom domains.
