How to Add an Email Signature in Gmail App on iPhone (iOS)

Step 1:

The best (and easiest) way to set up an email signature in your Gmail App on iPhone or iPad is to do it by using the web-based version of Gmail on your computer. When you do that, your email signature will automatically be appended to all your emails sent out from your Gmail App on your iPhone. This is done by the server-side processing of your emails on the Gmail servers.

Simply log in to your Gmail account using your computer, and install the email signature through there.

Step 2:

When you do this, make sure that your mobile signature is turned off in your Gmail App on your iPhone. Otherwise, it may conflict with the one you set up in webmail, and may not work correctly.

To turn mobile signature off in the Gmail app, go to Settings, Select your email account, Signature settings, set Mobile signature to “Off”.


  1. When adding the email signature to the web-based version of Gmail, please allow at least 1 hour for the signature to apply to your Gmail app on your phone.
  2. When sending emails from your phone, the signature won’t be visible at the bottom when you’re writing the email. To test if the signature works, send a test email, check your sent items folder and open your sent email. You should see the signature there. If you don’t see the signature, you may need to tap the “…” part for the signature to be shown.

  3. I’m sorry, I’ve made an error again. They signatures came out perfect on my computer, however did not transfer to my phone or iPad. Can you help please. Jen

    1. Hi Jen,

      You will need to install the email signature on every device/email app that you plan on using. This means you will need to install it onto your iPhone and iPad as the signature will not transfer over automatically.
