Gmail Confidential Mode Brings Self-Destructing Emails And Identity Verification For Recipients

Adjust Comment Print

Alongside the "self-destructing" feature Google will also allow the users to establish two-factor authentications by adding a passcode which will be generated by Google for private messages. Google has confirmed that the new design and features are coming within the coming weeks. "Google Go is designed from the ground up to address these issues and provide a seamless experience irrespective of what device or network the user is on".

That redesign drew mixed reactions from those who missed Gmail's original look. In the compose window of Gmail, there is a small lock icon named "Confidential Mode", which states that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email.

Gmail will reportedly offer a feature that will allow users to set a self-destruction time when the message they send will no longer be viewable by the recipient, according to TechCrunch. "These changes will also be made available to users with personal Gmail accounts, so we want to make sure you're adequately prepared for questions from your G Suite users in advance of the public announcement".

It is hard because we lose our run for the Europa League cup, but congratulations to Burnley . It's a good opportunity to start the game and to play with the first team.

Like other services that allow you to send disappearing messages, such as Snapchat and Instagram, Gmail's confidential mode doesn't prevent someone from taking a screenshot or photo of the email.

We're working on some major updates to Gmail (they're still in draft phase).

Earlier this week, we reported that Google was about to give Gmail a well-needed facelift. As spotted by Techcrunch and The Verge, the new version of Gmail is expected to implement a "a fresh clean look for Gmail on the web" as well as several interesting new features. You'll know this if you've ever tried to say something to your smart speaker while someone else is talking at the same time. Earlier this year Google disclosed cloud revenue figures for the first time, saying that the company is making $1 billion in revenue a quarter from the combined G Suite and Google Cloud Platform businesses. The company will be hosting its annual I/O developer conference from 8 May 2018 until 10 May 2018 and it's likely that further plans will be revealed then.
