How to check gmail address availability using this tool:
- Enter the username you would like to have into the input field. It must be between 6 and 30 long. Only a-z and 0-9 characters are allowed. Dots don't play any role, all dotted variants are the same as the main variant without dots.
- Click on the green "Check Availability" button to see if the name is free on Gmail.
- Check the result. If you need further information, check out our results guide below.
Username Availability Results Guide:
There are 2 possible outcomes of the username availability verification. The username is either free to register or taken. However, your username might not be suitable for Gmail, with 3 possible reasons. Let's take a look at all the possible result messages you might encounter:
The username is too short
Gmail username has to be 6 or more characters long.
The username is too long
Gmail username must not be longer than 30 characters.
The username contains invalid characters
Gmail username can only consist of alphanumerical characters. That is a-z and 0-9. No special characters are allowed.
The username is not available
In this case, the username check went through just fine. Unfortunately, the result is that the name is already taken and you cannot use it.
The username is available.
Green result is a good result! The username you checked is most probably available for registration. Why most probably? During our testing, we've encountered a tiny amount of cases with a false positive result.
