How to Create Multiple Email Addresses in Gmail

At some point, you might need more than one email address. You might need more privacy, anonymity, or merely a separation between work and home correspondence. Some email providers allow you to have one or a limited amount of email addresses. Other providers may charge a fee for extra addresses or even for your first address. Gmail is a completely free, user-friendly email service that is offered by Google. You can create multiple email addresses for different uses if you have Gmail.
