Gmail: if you received threats or bullying, do so now!

Technology does these things. Because some people sit behind a computer and theoretically make life hell for others rather anonymously (if not entirely). So they send messages, emails, and all sorts of things that can cause stress to others and other problems. Fortunately, there are tools to deal with these things, and in case you receive threats or other unwanted content through Gmail, you can easily block them. We’ll tell you how.

Gmail: if you received threats or bullying, do so now!

You can do this in two ways. Either via the web version or via the app.

To do this over the web we need to open the Gmail website here. Next we need to open the message of the person we want to block. After the email is opened we will use the three dot menu available in the top right corner. Then we just choose block. Usually Block appears and the name of the person who sent it.

Then a window will appear warning you not to block future messages from that person. We just need to select the Block option.

At this point, a warning will appear above the message telling us that messages from this sender will be sent to the spam box.

Once someone is banned, you will no longer receive email from them. At least from the spam box. However, they cannot even contact you in chat. To unlock, we simply do the reverse process. So all we have to do is open a message we received from that person, use the three dot menu and select the option to unlock.

If it is spam or phishing, the option is different

To do this, as soon as we open a message, we simply click on the three-dot menu in the upper right corner. If it’s spam, then simply click Report Spam. If, on the other hand, it is phishing, simply select the option to report phishing.

If we click on these options, the message will be reported not only to Google but also to Gmail’s spam folder.
