Update your information in seconds

Your Gmail signature is important information that tells your email recipients a little more about you. When you change your contact information, you also want to change your Gmail signature. While you’re there, you can also give it a modern look and professional design.

Your Gmail signature doesn’t follow you from one device to another. When you update your signature from your computer, only messages you send from Gmail on the web show the updated information. If you’re using Android, iPhone, or iPad, you’ll need to update your Gmail signature from those devices.

Find your Gmail signature on your computer

When you’re ready to update your contact information, edit your existing Gmail signature.

  1. Open your preferred web browser, then go to Gmail and sign in with your Google account.

  2. Select Settings Settings

  3. Select tab Occur often and scroll down to the Signature section.

  4. Update your signature with new information.

  5. When you’re done, scroll to the bottom of the page and select Saving Changes

Change the look of your Gmail signature

There are many ways to change the look of your Gmail signature, edit the text to update your contact information, or create a new look for yourself with text formatting and matching images. You’ll find everything you need in the Formatting toolbar above the signature.

Here are a few ways to change the look of your Gmail signature:

  • Change text format: select text and then change font style and the size † Or add bold italics underline or text color to the selected text.
  • Link to your site † Select text and then select Clutch † Enter the website URL in the text box Which URL should this link go to? and choose Okay
  • Add a profile picture or logo † Place the cursor where you want to place the image and select Insert image

If you select a photo stored in Google Drive, you must share the Google Drive file publicly for it to appear in the caption.

When you’re done making changes, scroll down the page and select Saving Changes

Troubleshooting: Can’t add text formatting

If you can’t add text formatting to your signature, you may be working in plain text mode. To disable plain text:

  1. Select To create to open a new message.

  2. Select extra options

  3. Uncheck the box next to Plain text mode
