How to block Google Forms spam emails in Gmail

This tutorial will show you step by step how to block Google Forms spam emails in Gmail.

Spammers use a simple setting in Google Forms to send junk emails through Google's mailing servers to completely avoid Gmail's spam filters.

All Google Forms emails have the following sender’s email address: forms-receipts-noreply@google.com. So to stop receiving Google Forms spam emails, you will need to create a filter in Gmail that will automatically delete emails that have Google Forms as the sender.
