Gmail Dot Trick Bug or a Feature ?

We know Gmail is a free email service offered by Google , This Gmail  Dot Trick is a cool Bug deals with username and a Dot ( . ) but its not a trick to hack the gmail account . Here all we need is a Gmail account with long username so that combinations can generated more.

Let the username and Password be

Username: dailytut@gmail.com

Password: asdf

Instead  of using  Gmail account with actual username and password it is possible to login like this

#Username: dailytu.t@gmail.com

#Password: asdf

#Username: dailyt.ut@gmail.com

#Password: asdf

#Username: daily.tut@gmail.com

#Password: asdf

#Username: dail.ytut@gmail.com

#Password: asdf

or even like this

#Username: d.a.i.l.y.t.u.t@gmail.com

#Password: asdf

NOTE: THE PASSWORD REMAIN SAME

  1. That’s because the username with DOT is not yet acquired. If it so , then it won’t work. I have seen similar trick that i might post lately in this week =)

  2. May be we can use this to fight against spam. Give one id to the sites you trust and its varied form to those which you don’t. Once if inbox is hit with spams, its easy to filter out…

  3. So, people who do not want to shed their Google ID with someone else finally have a great option to deal with that issue! This is a very good find and I never knew such a thing ever existed. I guess that the Google team is going to blog this hack soon.
