Disable Ads Appearing in Your Tabbed Gmail Inbox

Google’s New Tabbed Gmail Inbox organizes your emails automatically by dividing them into category such as Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums. The “Promotions” tab is designated for advertisements and marketing newsletters.

As I told above, the “Promotions” tab meant for offers and advertisements and Google now started rolling out a new set of advertisements that look like email messages. If you do not like these ads, you can easily disable them by disabling the promotion tab.

The Promotions tabs is enabled by default. As these ads are showing up only in the “Promotions” tab, by disabling it in Gmail can stop ads appearing in your inbox.


- Sign in your Gmail account

- Click the Settings icon in the top right corner of the Gmail tab.

- Select “Configure Inbox.”

- Deselect the “Promotions” tab and click Save. That’s it!
