Empty Gmail Trash (EGT) App Works Like A Charm

The Gmail app for Android lacks the option to delete files from the Trash folder. The Empty Gmail Trash app addresses this problem.

After using Gmail to send files from my Android-powered smartphone, I uncovered that I could not completely erase my tracks. I could easily delete the emails from the Sent folder, but I could not delete them from the Trash. Unlike the iOS version, the Android Gmail app does not feature the option to delete items from the Trash. You cannot “take out the trash” from the app itself – you must access Gmail from your desktop or mobile browser, or you can turn to Empty Gmail Trash (EGT for short) for a helping hand.


This Brookfield Applications-developed and appropriately named app is available as a free and a paid Pro version. The app does precisely what its name suggests: with a simple tap on your device’s screen, you will be able to permanently delete all the emails in the Trash folder. It basically takes the “Empty Trash Now” function you can easily access from your desktop browser and ports it to your Android-powered device.

Since security and privacy are important factors here, let me put your mind at ease.
From a security point of view, you must know that EGT does not ask for and does not save your Gmail password; it works by asking you to grant it access via Google OAUth2; at any time you can revoke this access.
From a privacy point of view you must know that EGT does not communicate with Brookfield Applications servers, it only communicates with Gmail servers.

Here are some other things you can expect to get from EGT: no ads, automatic syncing, automatic language detection, and the option to move the app to the SD card.

As mentioned above, EGT is available as a free and as a paid Pro version. By spending money on EGT Pro you get to enjoy these benefits: one tap Trash and Spam emptying, support for a second Gmail address, time-saving Tap and Go mode.

EGT Free is available for download in the Play Store here.
