3 ways to use a single-1 Gmail id as many-multiple ids! Gmail dot trick (.) and + plus tricks!


Heya folks, E-Mail or electronic mail is the most widely used means of communication over the Internet , also its kinda an impression of a person’s online identity. GMail is one such popular e-mail service provided by Google!. But do you know that a single or even one GMail ID can be used as multiple ID’s which we can use to perform multiple sign-ups ! , thus saving the troublesome task of creating multiple e-mail accounts for different accounts on a single site . A single Gmail ID can thus be tweaked to be camouflaged as different or multiple e-mail ID’s . Let’s have a look onto 3 of such best tricks to use a single 1 gmail ID as multiple ones or many ids.

Assumption :  I will be explaining all the tricks in the article using our default GMail ID for the website – techapple.net @ gmail . com. I will be using this single gmail id to get mails from multiple ids without even creating them!

Trick # 1 – Gmail dot (.) trick

  • This is one of the most widely used techniques to use a single E-Mail ID to sign-up for multiple accounts .
  • The Gmail dot trick consists of inserting any number of dots (.) or fullstop/period in your gmail ID username to show them as different IDs .
  • Thus, even if you send an email / or request an email on techapplenet @ gmail . com or t.e.c.h.a.p.p.l.e.n.e.t @ gmail . com it will arrive in the same e-mail ID! . (The original one)
  • The sign-up or other websites though treat them as different e-mail accounts, but in Gmail they are one! , so thus you can use a single gmail account id as multiple ones, I use this trick pretty much on signing up for free trial websites which provide freebies based on e-mail IDs.
  • So, Gmail dot trick in short –


Trick # 2 – GMail plus (+) trick


Trick # 3 – Using @googlemail.com instead of @gmail.com


Example of using the above technique –

We have our Gmail ID registered as [email protected] , you can check how we used each of the above combiation and still received the e-mail on our default ID.

Sending e-mail to [email protected] instead of [email protected]

Reception of mail sent to [email protected] on the GMail ID – [email protected]

Thus, you can use one or even all of the above methods to create multiple email or gmail ids for yourselves on just a single account! . The permutations and combinations possible are infinite! , also If you have queries/suggestions feel free to comment :)

      Hello Adarsh, the above mentioned techniques works only for receiving your mails :), for login you can use only your single default Id. But if you want to give your email address to someone you can use the above techniques to generate multiple IDs 🙂
