Gmail confidential mode on mobile: How - and why - you should use it

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Confidential Mode comes to Gmail Android app

In a tweet Google said: "Confidential mode is now available on mobile devices and can help you protect sensitive information from unauthorised access".

Google rolled out a new feature meant to heighten the security of Gmail users on Android.

Confidential Mode gives you tight control over the emails you send. The recipient can't copy, forward, print, or download an email that's marked as confidential, although there's no preventing them from taking screenshots. Passcodes can either be through a separate email (users not using Gmail) or through an SMS (just keep in mind to enter their mobile # when you turn it on). You have the ability to set an expiration date as well as a passcode for the email, if you so choose.

Using the drop-down menu under Set expiration option, select when you'd like the email conversation to self-destruct. The new tool is called Confidential mode and as the name suggests it can be used to send and receive "confidential emails". 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.

The network has published specifications Huawei Mate 20 Lite
Coming to the Mate 20 Lite you can check out the smartphone from all sides and it is just as premium as the Mate 20 . If you look closely, you will notice that the display is curved on the sides, has thin bezels and a notch on the top.

If you no longer want the recipient to access the file, you can remove the access. All passcodes will be generated by Google while non-Gmail recipients will get an email passcode to authenticate. If you've already turned on confidential mode for an email, go to the bottom of the email, then click Edit.

With this, let's say you're having to email a bunch of sensitive documents for a home purchase or a photo of a driver's license for some reason.

Now when it comes to sending the mail through this confidential mode it's easy.

In its most significant revamp ever, Gmail introduced a host of new features to the people's favourite email client a few months back.
