Tech News Desk – In early May, Google announced the introduction of blue checkmarks next to verified senders’ names on Gmail in a bid to reduce the growing number of scams. This feature is available starting May 3, 2023 for all Google Workspace users, older G Suite Basic and Business customers, and users with a personal Google Account. The feature is now rolling out to some Google Account users in India. The blue checkmark identifies the email as an official or verified account. With this check mark you can identify the authenticity of the sender.

This will let you know whether the photo on the profile of the mail sender is the same or not. Apart from this, whether this profile is verified or not. Gmail messages can be verified using tools such as the Brand Message Indicator for Identity (BIMI), Verified Mark Explanation (VMC), and Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conference (DMARC).
sender authentication tool
BIMI is an open standard that allows email senders to use their brand logos in emails. BIMI was introduced in Gmail in the year 2021. VMC is a digital certificate issued by a Certificate Authority, which verifies the ownership of the sender’s logo. DMARC is a standard used by email security systems to filter and separate genuine messages from spam messages. Once a person passes all these tests, Gmail lets them put a blue tick next to their name in Gmail to confirm their authenticity.
