Gmail’s Unsubscribe option may lead to more emails!



Gmail recently launched ‘Unsubscribe’ option on Android to let people opt out of eligible mailing lists directly from the Gmail app. It’s perfect for those newsletters you subscribed to a while back but don’t read any more.
What if you never subscribed or don’t remember you ever did ?  
You might be performing email verification in this case.  Performing ‘Unsubscribe’ in turn sends email to the mailing list. You may be validating your email address and let service know its active.
Result - More marketing offers and more spam.  
What you can do?
  • Double check before you unsubscribe
  • If unsure about subscription, better option is to Report spam or Block.
Your email address is private - Keep it private!
