Gmail has a mildly annoying feature that makes it automatically add anyone who emails you directly to your contact list. Using the guide below you can quickly and easily rectify this.


  • Open Gmail
  • Select the Gear Icon located in the top right

gmailcont1_shrink

  • Select See All Settings

gmailcont2_shrink

  • Scroll down to the Create contacts for auto-complete section & select I'll add contacts myself

gmailcont3_shrink

  • Scroll down and select Save changes

gmailcont4_shrink

That is the process complete. This is a great way from stopping Gmail cluttering up your Contacts list with people you really don't need in there
