Google adds Confidential mode to Gmail app

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Google has delivered several neat email features over the years, and now it's adding another one with confidential mode for Gmail. Additionally, recipients can't forward, copy, print or download these emails. Now when you send the mail to a particular recipient, they will have a specific time limit to check the mail after which it will be expired. Also, recipients of the confidential message will have numerous options that might compromise it disabled, so they won't be able to forward, copy, print, or download the message.

Confidential mode for Android and iOS is rolling out now.

In case you want to turn on the Confidential Mode to try it out, here are the steps that you will need to follow.

Transfer: Real Madrid ready to offer Chelsea €180m for Hazard
However, a Cristiano Ronaldo-less Real side hit back when Gareth Bale teed up Karim Benzema to equalise shortly before half-time. Real Madrid will be looking to put the defeat behind them when they kick off their La Liga campaign against Getafe on Sunday.

Even after you've set an expiration date for an email, you can remove access to it early. Passcodes can either be through a separate email (users not using Gmail) or through an SMS (just do not forget to enter their mobile # when you turn it on). However, one feature which was talked about a lot was the Confidential Mode. As the name suggests, the new feature allows you to send and receive "confidential" emails - so what does that mean?

In April, a brand new design of Gmail was leaked with new features such as snoozing, Smart Reply, and offline support.

This way you will be able to configure your email to the Confidential Mode. Google has officially announced via Twitter that confidential mode in Gmail is now available on mobile devices as well.
