The Android version of Gmail has received a new mode

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Google believes remaining cautious is just not enough to protect your sensitive data online which is why the company at its I/O conference held this year announced new Confidential Mode for Gmail users.

Google had introduced a myriad of features for its apps and services during the I/O developer conference which took place earlier this year. Gmail's Confidential Mode not only lets you send self-destructing emails but also bars the recipients from forwarding, copying/pasting or downloading the email contents.

So, there you have it: now you can do a little more to secure your emails when you use Gmail. Here you set the expiry date for the emails and enter a new passcode.

Once this is done, attach the file that you want, and send the email to the recipient. This is critical that they make sure that the email expires after a certain date and has high security so, no one else can open the email.

We will keep you posted once we have an updated per the email scheduling feature and other Gmail news in the coming days. Alongside brand-new features built on top of artificial intelligence and machine learning, Google also ushered in an entirely new look for the email client, repainting Gmail with a Material Design flair. The mode is a self-destruct timer too which will automatically delete all the info at the exact time you like.

Confidential mode could help prevent information leaks, but Google has a few caveats.

Some people contest Google's use of the word "confidential", arguing it might mislead people into expecting true confidentiality when in fact it doesn't. However, one feature which was talked about a lot was the Confidential Mode.

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. Confidential mode is not encrypted end-to-end, so Google could in fact read your messages in transit.
