Gmail offers a wide range of features and tools that make it easy for you to manage your email, stay organized, and get more done. However, did you know that Gmail also offers a hidden feature called “plus addressing”?

Plus addressing is a simple but powerful tool that can help you get even more out of your Gmail account. Here’s how it works:

In Gmail, you can add a “+” symbol and any word you want to the end of your email address, and it will still reach your inbox. For example, if your email address is, you can use,, or All of these email addresses will reach your inbox, but Gmail will treat them as separate email addresses.

This feature may not seem like much, but it can be incredibly useful in several ways. For one, it allows you to organize your emails in a more efficient manner. Instead of having all of your emails go to one inbox, you can create separate email addresses for different purposes, such as newsletters, Eventbrite notifications, or work-related communications.

Another advantage of Gmail Plus Addressing is that it makes it easier to track the source of spam emails. By creating a unique email address for each website or service you sign up for, you can easily identify which website is sending you spam by looking at the “from” field in the email. This way, you can take action to stop the spam and keep your inbox clean.

Plus addressing is a simple but powerful tool that can help you get even more out of your Gmail account.
