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 firstname.lastname@example.org is the same account as email@example.com.
- You can use the “+” sign in your Gmail name and add anything you want, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com. This is a great way to see and restrict how your email address is used. This also works with GSuite/Google Workplace custom domains.
