Confidential emails will automatically have the ability to forward, copy, print, and download removed, so the recipient won't be able to make copies of your original email. The Gmail account on Twitter announced the arrival of the feature that lets you put a self-destruct timer of conversations to “protect sensitive information from unauthorized access.”.

Gmail users on Android have just been given access to a brand new feature that will allow them to send messages and attachments in the most secure manner.

Confidential mode has come to Gmail, bringing self-deleting messages to the email service. "You can use confidential mode to set an expiration date for messages or revoke access at any time".

Foles, on the other hand, struggled with accuracy, completing only three of his nine pass attempts for 44 yards. Their latest protest comes just a week after they raised their fists in the exhibition opener.

With the new mode enabled, users can now set an expiration date for messages. If you choose to have a passcode, the recipient will have to enter the same to view the email content.

On the top right, tap on three dots and tap on Confidential Mode. Still, it's always nice to see more security features for popular apps like Gmail. Along with the control options, users can decide whether they will require recipients to obtain an SMS passcode before they can access the email message. You can always change your mind and remove or alter the confidential settings before sending the email. The feature launched on desktop earlier this year, and it allows senders to restrict things like forwarding, copying, and downloading the emails they send. That means that recipient won't be able to download any sensitive photos or documents you might send, so this will certainly have its uses for those in the business world as well.
