Find and merge duplicate contacts in Gmail

To find and fix all of your duplicate data at once, use the following instructions:

  1. Go to your contacts and click the More drop-down menu.

  2. Select Find and merge duplicates.

  3. The names of the contacts with duplicate data will be displayed. If an entry has only one contact, then the contact itself has duplicate data (repeated phone numbers, emails, etc.)
    1. Note: If an entry has two or more contacts, be sure to check whether these are duplicate contacts; many people have similar names. You can expand them by clicking details next to each one and unchecking any that you don't want to fix.
  4. When you're ready, click Merge at the top of the list.
