    Note: If you don't have the Gmail app, download it.
  2. Select one or more emails.
  3. In the top right, tap More More and then Report spam.

Tip: When you tap Report spam or manually move an email into your Spam folder, Google will receive a copy of the email and may analyze it to help protect our users from spam and abuse.

Why emails have spam warning labels

Gmail automatically identifies suspicious emails and marks them as spam. When you open your Spam label, you'll see emails that were marked as spam by you or Gmail. Each email will include a label at the top that explains why Gmail sent it to Spam.
