Google Adds ‘Confidential Mode’ To Gmail Android App

Android and iOS users are now able to use the new Gmail Confidential Mode.

Basically, with the Confidential Mode feature, you can send an email that will disappear after a while. In short, it enables users to set a time limit within which an email and any attachments to it much be handled by the message's recipient before it effectively self-destructs. In this mode, the recipient will not be able to forward the email to anyone else, copy the body of the email, or download the attachments. 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. It's then you'll be asked to set things like expiration dates and SMS passcodes. This will now be the norm for all confidential emails you send. This mode allows a user to send sensitive and private messages in a secured manner.

Google had introduced a myriad of features for its apps and services during the I/O developer conference which took place earlier this year.

It's a handy tool if you're sending information you're afraid of leaking out, or personal details that recipients should only need access to for a limited amount of time. At any point, you can once again renew access if you want. The users who use gmail, will see these messages as like normal mails.
