Google adds Gmail Confidential Mode to Android

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Confidential Mode touched base with the new Gmail in April this year, and Android and iOS users are at last getting it.

Head over to the Gmail app on your mobile device.

The new feature is available now, no need to update the Gmail app, as GSMArena notes. Gmail's Confidential Mode not only lets you send self-destructing emails but also bars the recipients from forwarding, copying/pasting or downloading the email contents. One of the new features is Confidential Mode which allows for the sending of auto-expiring messages - although, as we have previously noted, it's not ideal by any means. How many times have you dithered from sending critical information like bank account number or password to someone via Gmail?

When the confidential mode was announced earlier this year, it drew mixed reviews from email practitioners. Google didn't say when the feature will roll out to iOS users, but there's no reason it won't come eventually. This will add that extra layer of security on your email.

Open the sent confidential email.

We will keep you posted once we have an updated per the email scheduling feature and other Gmail news in the coming days. Then tap on three vertical dots at top right corner and elect the Confidential mode.

Users can also prevent recipients from opening an email before the expiration date.

In addition, all messages sent through confidential mode, you can not forward a text from them it will be impossible to copy. Confidential Mode offers a suite of email protection to users, which is another major drive towards making Google's popular email service more secure for every user out there. In fact, these settings can be altered even after the mail has been sent, by simply visiting the sent item from the sent folder. With apps like BHIM, when you enter the payments mode and take a screenshot, it either gives an error that you can't take screenshots, or on some phones it captures complete black photos.
