Gmail (iOS) Installation

To install an email signature in Gmail on iOS, please follow the steps below:

To use a custom signature in your Gmail iOS app, you'll need to first install your signature using your webmail account:

  1. 1
    Open your Gmail account in a web browser.
  2. 2
    Click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the screen and select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  3. 3
    Scroll down to the “Signature” section.
  4. 4
    If you have multiple email accounts set up, make sure you select the correct account from the “No signature” dropdown menu.
  5. 5
    Copy the Author Signature into your clipboard.
  6. 6
    Add your signature by typing in the text you want to appear (e.g. Name, Company, Phone Number, Social Media, etc) including any links.
  7. 7
    Use the formatting toolbar to customize your signature by selecting the font type, size, color, and more.
  8. 8
    Paste the Author Signature below the text you want in your email signature.
  9. 9
    In the ""For New Emails Use"" dropdown, select your new email signature.
  10. 10
    Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on “Save Changes” to save your new signature.

Now that you've installed it in your webmail account, you can proceed to the next steps in the iOS app. To send your custom signature via the app, you'll need to turn off your mobile signature default:

  1. 1
    Select your appropriate Gmail account.
  2. 2
    Tap the Menu Icon.
  3. 3
    Scroll down to the bottom and tap "Settings".
  4. 4
    Tap "Signature Settings".
  5. 5
    Set the "Mobile Signature" toggle to "Off".

That’s it! Your new email signature is now installed and ready to use in Gmail on iOS.

A few important points to remember:

  • Your email signature will not be visible in the email composer, so the only way to see if it is working is to send yourself an email.
  • It may take a while until it starts sending via the Gmail app, after you installed your signature via webmail. A quick way to fix to this is to switch to another Gmail account and then switch back to the previous account through the app. Or, if you just have one account, remove your account from the app and then re-add it again.
