How to Access Spam Folder On Your iPhone 12

Share This:

If you’re an iPhone 12 user, you may be wondering how to find your spam folder and what its purpose is. The spam folder is a great tool for managing emails that you don’t want to receive, such as unsolicited messages from sources you don’t trust. It helps keep your inbox free from clutter and makes it easier to find important emails.

On the iPhone 12, the spam folder is located in the Messages app under Settings > Unknown & Spam. To access it, open the Messages app and scroll down until you see Unknown & Spam. Tap on this option, then tap on Spam Folder to view all emails that have been identified as spam.

In addition to the iPhone 12, most email clients also have a spam folder that contains emails identified as junk or suspicious. For example, if you are using Gmail on your computer or web browser, go to the left sidebar that displays all the folders including your inbox folder. Click on “More” and scroll down until you find the “Spam” folder.

It’s important to note that not all emails in your spam folder are necessarily dangerous or malicious; some may just be sent from unfamiliar sources and marked as potential threats by your email provider’s automated system. However, if an email looks suspicious or appears to contain malicious links or attachments, it’s best to delete it immediately without opening it.

By using a spam folder on your iPhone 12 and other devices with email services, you can keep your inbox organized and protect yourself from unwanted messages or malicious content.

Comparing the Junk Folder and Spam on iPhone

No, the Junk folder and Spam are not the same. The Junk folder is where mail sent to your address or its aliases is automatically moved if it is identified as junk (spam). The Spam folder is where messages from certain email addresses that you have marked as spam are moved. You can manually mark messages as spam in either the Inbox or the Junk folder by selecting the message and tapping the “Mark” icon at the bottom of your screen.


In conclusion, the spam folder is a key tool for keeping your inbox organized and secure. It can be accessed on both iPhone and web-based email applications, as well as many other email services. On the iPhone, you can access it from Settings > Messages > Unknown & Spam. For web-based email applications such as Gmail, you simply need to scroll down on the left sidebar that displays all the folders until you find the spam folder under the ‘More’ option. With this tool, you can ensure that unwanted emails stay out of your inbox and make sure that your emails are secure.
