Gmail Confidential Mode lets you send top-secret emails on your phone

19 August, 2018, 15:27 | Author: Sergio Cook

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. According to Gmail's official Google+ page, the feature is now rolling out to Gmail users on mobile. You can use confidential mode to set an expiration date for messages or revoke access at any time.

In case you want to renew the access, head over to sent emails, open that email, and tap on renew access, and the user will once again be able to view the content.

Users are able to set expirations for emails in addition to choose whether a password is required.

The new feature is already available without the need to update the app. Gmail did not respond to inquiries when the mode will arrive to iOS devices, but it should hit Apple devices.

To begin with, ensure that your Gmail app is up to date with the latest version 8.7.15.

Stevie Wonder visited the Queen of Soul on Tuesday according to her longtime publicist Gwendolyn Quinn confirmed to Us Weekly . Last year Franklin announced her plans to retire from touring in February 2017, so that she could more time with family.

Once this feature is live for you, you will find it by clicking on the 3-dot settings button in the top right corner of the Compose UI. At any point, you can once again renew access if you want.

With the new add-on installed, users can add a file to an email message by directly linking to a folder or a file stored in Dropbox. Another minor downside might be if you don't check your email a lot, and then the message expires before you've seen it.

For advanced protection, the sender of the message can also require the recipient to enter a passcode.

Even with all this, Gmail still allows users to take screenshots of confidential emails.

Open the mail sent via Confidential mode, scroll down to the bottom of the screen.
