Back in 2021, Google introduced BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification), a tech that enabled enrolled brands to add brand logos as their email avatars to authenticated emails. Now, building on this feature, the tech giant is introducing blue verification checkmarks for verified senders in Gmail. This was announced in the company's blog post.

Handy Tips: How to Quickly Delete All Unread Emails in Gmail
Sometimes, it happens that you want to delete all your emails because otherwise, you will stop receiving new messages until you free up space in your mailbox. The reason for this inconvenience is the 15 GB Google account limits in Drive, Gmail, and Photos services.

Blue checkmarks are designed to leverage brand trust and help users figure out whether the email's sender is a legitimate source or a scammer. In turn, it will also be easier for Google to block spam and identify fraudulent emails faster.

Companies already verified through BIMI will receive a verification checkmark automatically. Detailed instructions on how to do this are available on Google's website.
