Including a signature is very important for a lot of email users, particularly in business or work environments where it might be useful for your contacts to be able to contact you in a variety of ways.
Gmail signatures can include text, links, images and more, meaning that there are many ways to make your signature look exactly how you want.
But if you’re including a signature with outdated information, or if you simply don’t want to use one anymore, then you might need to know how to remove a signature from Gmail. Our guide below is going to show you how.
How to Remove a Gmail Signature
The steps in this article were performed in the desktop version of the Google Chrome Web browser. This guide assumes that you already have an existing signature.
Step 1: Sign into your Gmail inbox at https://mail.google.com.
Step 2: Click the gear icon at the top-right, then choose Settings.
Step 3: Scroll to the Signatures section of the menu and click the circle to the left of No signature.
Step 4: Scroll to the bottom of the menu and click the Save Changes button.
Note that this doesn’t actually delete the existing signature, it simply stops it from appearing when you send emails. If you wish to delete your Gmail signature you can do so by clicking inside the signature field under the No signature option and deleting the information in that field.
If you have a signature that’s being added by another application, then this won’t remove that. For example, iPhone and Outlook have their own signature settings that will override your Gmail account settings, so you will need to turn off those signature options as well.
