An email signature is a pattern of text, such as your contact information or a favorite quote, that is added to the bottom of every message that you send through Gmail as a footer.
Your email signature gives credibility to your messages by identifying you as the sender and letting recipients know who they are communicating with (your full name and a photo of you) Your recipients have access to your contact information by way of your email signature, which includes your phone number and email address, as well as the website of your firm or any current social media accounts.
