Google adds Gmail Confidential Mode to Android

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Google has announced this morning that the feature has now gone live in the Gmail for Android app. Confidential emails will automatically have the ability to forward, copy, print, and download removed, so the recipient won't be able to make copies of your original email.

We first learned about Google's new "confidential mode" for Gmail back in April: a feature to help users better protect sensitive information they send to their contacts.

Confidential Mode sends emails that self-destruct after a given length of time. However, one feature which was talked about a lot was the Confidential Mode. SMS-based passcodes are the only option if your recipient is using a Gmail account - recipients using another email service can receive either SMS or email passcodes.

B.C. declares state of emergency over wildfires
In fact, lightning has already sparked more than 1,300 wildfires in B.C. this year, which is more than any year since 2009. More wildfires sparked over the weekend, with almost 600 burning across B.C. "Rain is going to be absolutely critical".

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. On both, all you need to do is begin composing a new email, tap the more icon (three vertical dots on Android or three horizontal dots on iOS), and then select "Confidential Mode" and turn the setting on. If already turned on, click Edit. Now when you send the mail to a particular recipient, they will have a specific time limit to check the mail after which it will be expired.

This way you will be able to configure your email to the Confidential Mode.
