How to Block Someone on Gmail

On an everyday basis, we all have to come across unwanted emails. Although in most cases, skipping those junk emails seems to be the viable option, the wastage of time and energy caused by such a repeated manual filtering process can be ridiculously high over time. In fact, trying to skip through all the unwanted emails in order to read the important ones can cause severe stress when you have to do that every day!

So how do you deal with the issue? Can you block people on Gmail? Is there a simpler way to block Gmail contacts, without having to go through the time-consuming and cumbersome in-built blocking process?

Well, fortunately, a new application called Block Sender aims to make filtering of unwanted messages easier than ever. The application works for Gmail, and allows you to block contacts, websites, and even subject lines.

Using the application is a very straightforward process, and you can easily block someone from Gmail by using the following simple steps:

  • Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the "Install" button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won't take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
  • After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open an email from the person you don't want to receive emails from, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
  • Select the "Emails from this sender" option.

That is all. Using the simple process outlined above, you can block anyone from filling your Gmail unnecessarily with the help of the Gmail Block Sender app.
