Yesterday a person texted my phone through a Gmail account and I thought it was just an accident or a bot or something. I reported it as junk and it deleted their initial “Hi.” But since then they’ve messaged me 2 more times, so now I’m assuming is just a creep.

How would I go about blocking this Gmail, so I can no longer receive messages from them?

I tried looking up how to block numbers, but when I click the Information button and scroll down, “Block this caller” doesn’t even appear to be a button..? I then looked up how to block Gmails, but nothing came up that would help.

I faced a similar issue where some stranger sending me creepy texts using Gmail chat. I simply sent a SMS with the keyword "Stop", and after that I didn't get a single text from that email address on my phone number. I'm not entirely sure if it would work in 2019, but you can give it a try. Same thing is suggested in this old article: https://techwithlove.com/how-to-send-sms-from-gmail. So it might worth a try!

If supported by your carrier, then you can login to your account and block that email from sending you text messages. Someone suggested these steps on AndroidCentral forums to block text messages from the email and/or on Verizon:

  • Login to your account and hit MY VERIZON.
  • At the bottom of the number block list, choose BLOCK ALL TEXT MESSAGES SENT FROM THE WEB and BLOCK ALL TEXT MESSAGES FROM EMAIL .
  • Save and close.
