How To Unsubscribe From Emails On Gmail

Receiving a plethora of unwanted emails in your inbox can be quite frustrating. Whether they’re promotional emails, newsletters, or other messages that you’re no longer interested in, they can clutter your inbox and make it difficult to find important messages. Fortunately, Gmail offers a simple way to unsubscribe from such emails. In this article, we will walk you through the process of unsubscribing from emails on Gmail.

Using the Desktop Version

Let’s start with the steps for unsubscribing from emails via the desktop version of Gmail:

  1. Open your Gmail account and navigate to your inbox.
  2. Open the email from the sender you wish to unsubscribe.
  3. Look for an ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the email, usually located near the bottom. The placement can vary depending on the sender.
  4. Click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link and confirm your decision in the subsequent dialog box.

If the email does not have an ‘Unsubscribe’ link, Gmail also has built-in functionality to assist you. On the top-right corner of the email, you will see a menu represented by three vertical dots. When you click on this, a dropdown will appear with the option to ‘Block [Sender]’. Clicking on this will prevent emails from this sender appearing in your inbox.

Using the Mobile App

Unsubscribing from emails on the Gmail mobile app is just as straightforward.

  1. Open the Gmail app on your phone and go to your inbox.
  2. Open the email from the sender you want to unsubscribe from.
  3. Tap on the three vertical dots at the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. Tap on ‘Unsubscribe’ or ‘Change preferences’.

There, you’ve successfully unsubscribed from unwanted emails on your Gmail account!


Unwanted emails can quickly fill up your inbox, making it harder to focus on important messages. Thankfully, Gmail has made it relatively easy to unsubscribe from these emails, whether you’re using a desktop or a mobile device. With these steps, you should be able to maintain a cleaner and more organized inbox.
