Method 1: Use Gmail custom tips
To create a virtual Gmail account, we will use a trick to customize our account.
Step 1: Assume if your email address is “email@example.com“When asked to enter an email address on a service, a website where you don’t want to use the primary address, in this case we just need to add a specific tag to our email address, such as “+firstname.lastname@example.org“, good “+ unwantedemail.gmail.com“as the screen shot below.
Messages sent to that new address will appear in your inbox.
Step 2: The next step to create Gmail is to set up Gmail filter to automatically delete emails and messages sent from the created virtual email address. To do this, enter a specific tag in the Search box at the top of the inbox window, then click the arrow icon on the right side. Add a tag From item (from) on the filter window, then click Create filter (create filter).
