Here is a handy Gmail privacy tip. You can create a new email address by making an alias.

This trick helps filter junk and allows you to stay organized while wearing a bunch of different hats โ€“ especially when you share a single account login for business and personal use.

To create an alias add a plus sign to your email address before the @ sign. For example:

There is nothing to do in Gmail. When an email comes in, Gmail will ignore the + sign, and send the email to you.

Signed up for a newsletter just so you could get a coupon? Use โ€œyouremail+newsletter@gmail.comโ€

Using your personal email address for your passion project? Use โ€œyouremail+work@gmail.comโ€ to identify all emails related to your project.

On a recreational softball team? Use โ€œyouremail+team@gmail.comโ€ to track emails from your team.

The list can go on and on.

You can then setup filters to filter your email based on the alias you created.

This works with both free Gmail and Google Workspace accounts.
