Gmail Has New Ads That Look Like Emails, Here's How to Turn Them Off

When Google introduced the new tabbed interface for Gmail, it also brought along some new ads under the Promotions tab.

The ads look a bit too much like legitimate emails, which is problematic for many users. However, they’re also limited to the Promotions tab, which makes it super easy to turn them off if you want to avoid confusion. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Settings icon in the top right corner of the Gmail tab.
  2. Select “Configure Inbox.”
  3. Deselect the “Promotions” tab and click Save.

Of course, if you want to keep the Promotions tab, there’s not much you can do. You can also disable the tabs entirely by unchecking everything except “Primary” on this same menu, if you prefer.
