1) You can add a “+” sign right after your email prefix, and then add anything after that, between the + and the @, and it will create unique test emails address. All of which will be emailed to your original address.

For example, if your email address is adam@gmail.com, you can do

adam+hello@gmail.com or
adam+tryme@gmail.com

and both will be routed to adam@gmail.com

2) Second way to accomplish this is to place a “." anywhere in the prefix part.

For example, if your email address is adam@gmail.com, you can do

ad.am@gmail.com or
a.dam@gmail.com

and both will be routed to adam@gmail.com
