Your email signature is a good place to put contact details (or add a bit of personality). To change signatures in Gmail, follow this guide.
Do you use Gmail for work or pleasure? If you do, you may need to change your signature in Gmail from time to time, depending on how you use your account.
A work signature might need to fit your business branding and contain your employer’s contact details. A personal signature, in contrast, can look a little more fun, allowing you to use a different font or include images. You might decide you don’t want to use a signature at all and want to remove it.
Thankfully, it’s easy enough to change a signature in Gmail. Here’s what you’ll need to do.

If you have multiple devices, it’s important to remember that you’ll need to change your Gmail signature for each device you use. Your signature won’t sync across, so changing it via the website won’t see the signature synced to your mobile devices. The signature options are more limited in the Gmail mobile app, too.
