GetHuman3849048's Technical Support issue with Google from October 2019

The issue in GetHuman3849048's own words
I created an email account to apply for jobs, *****@***.com, however after creating the account I realized I forgot the period between my first and last name.*I tried to register a new account with the period between my first and last name however the system notified me that the username is already in use. **I thought that was weird so I try sending an email to myself with the period between my first and last name and one without the period and I received both emails. **The problem with this is, if there are any future Google policy changes that affected affect the period it could affect if I get my emails or not.**To safeguard against this is it possible for you to officially change my email to include a period between my first and last name?

GetHuman3849048 did not yet indicate what Google should do to make this right.

How GetHuman3849048 fixed the problem
The period is irrelevant. Google doesn't recognize it. You can enter your email without a period and it will be fine.
