How to add an email signature to Gmail



Gmail logo

Google’s Gmail service supports configurable signatures that are attached to any email you send. You can add your name, job title, social media details, phone number, or anything else you want to your signature.

There are two types of signature: web signatures sent from Gmail on the desktop and mobile signatures sent from Gmail on your phone.

Add a signature to Gmail on the web

You can add multiple email signatures and switch between them too.

Adding a mobile signature

You can also add signatures that are specific to mobile devices. These signatures will overwrite the desktop versions you just added. In other words, when you send an email from a device with a mobile signature, Gmail just sends the mobile signature and ignores your desktop signature.

You can use these signatures for anything, but the common practice is to create one that will alert people that you are on a mobile device so they know you may be slower to respond (when you are out of the office) or that this will be typo due to overzealous autocorrection.

Of course, you can also use the desktop signature for all of your devices. You don’t need to set up a separate mobile signature.

To set up a mobile signature, open the Gmail app on your mobile device – iPhone, iPad, or Android.

Open the Gmail app

In the top left, tap the hamburger menu.

In Gmail, tap the menu button

Add your text and close Gmail to save your new mobile signature.

You now have a cell-only custom signature that will only appear when using Gmail on a mobile device. Your desktop signature will be retained even though Gmail defaults to using the mobile signature on your phone or tablet.
