    If you don't already know about this gmail . trick here it is,

    You can use the same gmail for multiple accounts by inserting a period in the address.

    For example:
    IG Account 1 - example@gmail.com
    IG Account 2 - e.xample@gmail.com
    IG Account 3 - ex.ample@gmail.com

    All email verifications will be sent to the same inbox (example@gmail.com) which saves time & simplifies the process.

    Although this links accounts together, I have not run into any trouble using this... yet...

    This is called the dot method, nothing new. You make the name 20 letters long and have 20 accounts on 1 email. Never tried it. Nice to see it works.
    Maybe it will help noobs.

    Yes, the trick is old. Once i looked into it and it was mentioned first in 2009 here, 8 years ago, when i registered. :)

    However i wouldn't recommend using it on social media sites, because all of your accounts can get linked single-handedly.
    Or a lot more, if you put more than one dot and you combine it with a plus sign, which also works: e.x.amp.le+1.trj@gmail.com, these emails will still go to example@gmail.com. So the amount of combinations are practically countless.
