The steps in this article are going to show you how to remove a signature from your Gmail account.
- Existing Gmail signature
- Gmail account
- Web browser
- Sign into your Gmail inbox.
- Click the gear icon at the top-right, then choose Settings.
- Scroll to the Signature section of the menu and choose No signature.
- Scroll to the bottom of the menu and click Save Changes.
This removes your Gmail signature if it was added directly to your Gmail account. If the signature is being added by a third-party application, such as Microsoft Outlook or your phone's Mail app, then you will need to remove the signature from that location instead.
Including a signature on your email account provides a simple and convenient way for you to give your email recipients important information.
Whether this is your address, phone number, website or social media accounts, having that information be added automatically to your composed messages can be very helpful.
But you may find that you no longer need that signature. Or, perhaps, it includes old or irrelevant information and you don’t want people using that information by mistake.
Luckily you can remove a signature from Gmail in a manner similar to how it was originally added in the first place. Plus you can do this without actually deleting the signature information in case this is only a temporary measure and you intend to use the signature again in the future.
How to Remove Signature from Gmail
The steps in this article were performed in the desktop version of the Google Chrome Web browser, but will also work in other desktop Web browsers as well.
Step 1: Sign into your Gmail account and navigate to your Gmail inbox.
Step 2: Click the gear icon at the top-right of the window, then click the Settings button.
Step 3: Scroll down to the Signature section of the menu, then click the circle to the left of No signature. Note that you can delete the existing signature if you would like, but you can also leave it there if you want to use it again later.
Step 4: Scroll to the bottom of the menu and click the Save Changes button.
Note that if you do not see a signature in Step 3 above, then any signature that is being added to your emails is being done so by another application. This is common when sending emails from your smartphone or with programs like Microsoft Outlook.
