How To Block Emails in Gmail - Tech Harry

Gmail is the most used Email service in the world. Although it is a very great application for every user most of the time, we get emails from Spam users and promotions. We always get spam and promotion emails from different spammers and businesses.

You always see, whenever you visit a site, they ask for your Gmail account to go further into the website or if you try to watch a movie from pirated sites they first ask your Gmail account. These sites set notifications and email reminders so that they can show you the new update or content from their sites and they get more and more leads from various Gmail accounts.

Google uses various algorithms which automatically send spam emails and promotional emails into separate folders like the Spam folder or Promotion folder. But sometimes, some spam emails are not gotten by Google algorithms and sent to general or important folders of our Gmail. There are two main ways to get rid of these spam emails and promotional emails in Gmail. First, we can stop registering to spam websites with our Gmail. Second, we can block the users who send these spam emails.

Here, we'll know the steps to block and unsubscribe someone in Gmail with very easy steps. After you block someone from your Gmail, Google investigates that particular user who sends spam emails, and sometimes if they found suspicious then Google can also remove their account from their servers.

So, this is, how to block someone in Gmail from your desktop or mobile.
