Gmail for Android updated with Confidential mode

  • Google adds Confidential mode to Gmail app

One of the biggest features Google added in the Gmail redesign is finally making its way to the service's mobile clients on iOS and Android. The feature was hidden, and not something that was advertised openly. 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.”. Also, if you use an SMS passcode, you might need to give Google your recipient's phone number (if the company doesn't already have it). Senders can even set the emails to expire after a set period of time, which comes in handy during the exchange of sensitive information. This mode, available while making an email, prevents the recipient from copying/ pasting, forwarding, downloading, and printing the content in the email. Mission Impossible fans will get that!

How to use Confidential Mode? The feature which was previously available for desktop has now been extended to Android and iOS applications. If not, update and then launch the app on your device. There's a new option in the overflow menu at the top called "Confidential mode".

To enable the option on your computer, users will need to use the new Gmail interface. However, it's not as prominently placed as one would like and if you're not aware, you can easily miss it. If the recipient is a non-gmail user, then they will get a passcode to their email for authentication. This works by sending a link instead of the confidential email directly to the recipient. Here you set the expiry date for the emails and enter a new passcode.

The feature allows you to specify an expiration date or manually revoke access to a message.

Nearly makes you believe that the internet can be private.

Now you can compose the email and send it.
