Gmail Forwarding Notice

Gmail Forward Notice
As i woke up early in the morning, the first of the websites i used to open first were Facebook, Manga, Blog, and Gmail. As i opened my email, i noticed that it has a pink bar and has a written text that notifies me that i forwarded to an another account.At first glance, i thought i made a violation to Google but as i read it clearly. It only suggest to review settings in my forwarding.

Why it has a notice?
According to them they put a notice just to confirm/ensure that you are actually forwarding correct and accurate another email address. Also, those who only enable the forwarding feature, they will experience a notice. Forwarding Feature is a great tool that can send incoming messages and forwards it to another email account. Just in case you owned another email account this feature is pretty useful.

How long will it removes there?
They said for about a week, it will appear in a few minutes each time you login to gmail.

How to remove unwanted forwarding?

If the content of the notice looks unneeded or unfamiliar, please do the following:
  1. If you see unfamiliar account access, please change your password immediately. This may indicate that someone has unauthorized access to your account. It's a good idea to pick a strong password for your Gmail account and never use it again on other websites.
  2. Sign back in to your Gmail account and click the gear icon in the top right corner of Gmail and choose Mail settings.
  3. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  4. In the 'Forwarding' section, select the Disable forwarding radio button.
  5. Click the first drop-down menu in the 'Forwarding' section and remove any unfamiliar email addresses.
