Gmail for Android updated with Confidential mode

Share

Confidential mode has been recently added to Gmail for Android, which is meant to help users protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. After rolling out on desktop earlier this year, Google announced via its social channels on Thursday that confidential mode is now available on mobile devices as well.

If you want to use the new Gmail Confidential Mode, first you have to make sure you have the latest Gmail app installed.

A mass funeral took place for the children this week, with thousands gathering to demonstrate against the attack. In October 2016, a coalition air strike killed 140 people at a funeral in the rebel-held capital Sanaa.

The Confidential Mode allows the senders to put a time stamp on their emails, like a countdown, after which the email disappears from the recipients' accounts. Senders can also do things like set expiration dates for messages so recipients will no longer have access to them. Another functionality of the confidential mode is the ability to restrict the recipient from copying, forwarding or downloading the email for further use. It's then you'll be asked to set things like expiration dates and SMS passcodes. You can always change your mind and remove or alter the confidential settings before sending the email. At least, it'll be a valuable tool for the business world once Google launches the feature for G Suite, which hasn't happened yet.

Gmail's confidential mode is an interesting feature for email that provides low-level protection for your messages.
