Gmail ignores dots..a gmail secret..

It is bit old but still a surprise for many.

What is your gmail id? is it your.name@gmail.com ? so in the login page you will give your.name as your Username, right?

But instead try “yourname” as username… Gmail allows you to login.

Surprised? Gmail ignores dots in email ids a.b.c@gmail.com is same as abc@gmail.com

yes this is you

If you receive an email ignoring dots in your gmail id then it will show as above…

But there is a small problem in this.. you register in a third party site with “.” in your Gmail id and after some time you decide to ignore dots in your email, now you try to use the third party site’s forgot password option and if you didn’t remember that you have used “.” when you registered, then you may lose your account in the site. This is because for other sites your.name@gmail.com is different from yourname@gmail.com.
