Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

Google working on expiring emails for Gmail

The report suggests that the new Gmail could come with a self-destructing email feature, similar to what is already offered by Protonmail. Now again according to some sources the Gmail is testing Confidential emails which will expire automatically. The new feature will allow users to set the expiration date.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires. We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features.

Gmail will have a so-called Confidential Mode, a system created to secure the important emails that users send and that should not reach other mailboxes. If a user is busy and unable to respond to a particular email, he or she can hit the snooze button.

Google's Gmail email platform hasn't seen much in the way of updates lately but that's changing soon.

"We work hard to comply with the right to be forgotten, but we take great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest", Google said in a statement.

That redesign drew mixed reactions from those who missed Gmail's original look. This may mean that people in other services will be able to read the email, but only if they also have a Google account.

The web clients of Gmail are set to receive one of its most substantial overhauls in the next few weeks, yet Google made no announcements publicly.

And you'll be able to put an extra layer of security on particularly sensitive emails - you can require the recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode (sent to their phone), or to log in a second time, before viewing the content.

Google has confirmed that the launch is near, but they haven't released specifics at this time. On the other hand, Google generates an email with a link in Gmail's current implementation. Moreover, when you activate the confidential mode the emails can't be copied, printed or forwarded. As The Verge notes, a Confidential email recipient would only need to take a screenshot of an email to avoid these safeguards entirely.
