Now days I am in reading mode, I mean I am reading so many tips and tricks available on the internet these days. Even I have shared a trick to send anonymous emails in my last post and now again I found something useful which I thought to share with TTW readers.
When I was infant of using Internet I was keep on subscribing so many website’s newsletters but now as my work completely revolves around the internet, I visit the websites directly hence I don’t need subscription to their newsletters. There are many websites still out there which newsletter is needed but most of them are not needed because I would have visited their site before their newsletter comes to me.
In fact, many emails I get daily are either just nonsense or not useful to me [Even many of them looks like I never subscribed but getting emails from them] hence I always either trash or mark spam to them without even opening them. As I don’t even open them, I always forget to unsubscribe from them.
If I have to unsubscribe from those emails then what I do is to search the “unsubscribe” word in my Gmail and then open every email, then search for unsubscribe link and then click on that to unsubscribe. I search “Unsubscribe” word because almost newsletters gives the option to unsubscribe but Don’t you think after opening each email we need to search for unsubscribe link first which seems to be annoying at times.
But don’t worry I have found a chrome extension which makes unsubscribing easier. You may install that extension from here.
When you install this extension then it will show a “Unsubscribe” option in the emails that is having an unsubscribe option. Like this:-
Just click on this red button and you will be unsubscribed. As I am a chrome and Gmail user, it works best for me.
But there are few things you will not like in this extension as it works only with those emails in which there is a link on “unsubscribe” word. If the Unsubscribe word is present but it’s not linked then this extension won’t work.
Are you getting what I am trying to say Here? No?
OK, Let me make it easy for you to understand.
This extension will work when the unsubscribe option is given in this way. i.e. link on unsubscribe button:-
But the extension will not work if the option give in this way because there is no “unsubscribe” word and hence no link on this word.
Even the word “Unsubscribe” is there but not linked then it doesn’t work. It still works most of the time in this case too.
I simply in love with this extension. How about you? I am sure you’re gonna love it too.
