How to Turn Off All Email Notifications from Google+

In the last several weeks many new Google+ users have contacted me to ask how to turn off all the emails. Unfortunately, when a user signs up for Google+ many of the email settings are turned on by default. This means if a user adds several active Google Plussers they could get anywhere from 200 to 500 emails in a single day. This is not the desire of the social layer of Google. Early on, I learned to turn the email notifications off. This allowed me to get much more out of the Google+ experience. Here is what you need to do:

Click on your profile picture in the upper right hand corner of Google+. You will see an “account” tab under your email address. You can also go hereĀ https://www.google.com/settings/account. This will allow you to adjust the settings on all of your Google accounts. On the left there will be a tab for Google+. Click that tab and the screen will look similar to this:

Note that I only allow those in my extended circles to send me notifications. This drastically cuts down on the notifications I receive. I would suggest giving this a try if you receive too many notifications from strangers or users in which you have no desire to communicate. When you scroll down on that same page you will notice a screen that looks like this:

As you can see, I have most of the email boxes unchecked. If you feel as if you are getting way too much email from Google+ I highly recommended unchecking these boxes. Part of my success on Google+ is not being overloaded with information. I am very selective with the Google+ accounts and pages I follow. By using strong circle management skills I get quality content quickly and I do not have to worry about sorting through all the noise.

If you are struggling to better understand Google+ please reach out to me at jwojdylo@gmail.com. I can direct you to some resources that will be of assistance. I would also suggest joining the Google Plus Pro Tips community as you can get your questions answered very quickly by a number of experienced Google+ users.
