Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Confidential Mode is now available on the iOS and Android Gmail apps.

How to use Gmail's Confidential Mode on your mobile phone To get started, you'll need the updated version of Gmail on your phone.

In April, a brand new design of Gmail was leaked with new features such as snoozing, Smart Reply, and offline support.

In order to send a confidential mode email, just begin composing a message and tap the "Confidential mode" toggle from the menu at the top. You can also choose SMS passcode to make it compulsory for recipients to receive the passcode through text message.

Confidential Mode sends emails that self-destruct after a given length of time.

The feature is live now in Gmail, so you can check it out.

Even after you've set an expiration date for an email, you can remove access to it early. This means that if you want to send sensitive information via e-mail, you'll be able to do so with added security.

Users interested in trying out the new confidential mode should look for a new confidential mode icon in the bottom right corner of the compose window. Confidential mode is not encrypted end-to-end, so Google could in fact read your messages in transit. Another minor downside might be if you don't check your email a lot, and then the message expires before you've seen it. Ensure you enter the recipients phone number not of your own.

While confidential mode is undoubtedly a more secure way to send sensitive information such as a photo of your driver's license or private documents, Google can't stop a recipient from simply taking a screenshot of their screen once they open the email.
