Google adds Confidential mode to Gmail app

Oscar Goodwin | 19 August, 2018, 15:28

While the new confidential mode may be useful for some users, Google cautions it is not meant to completely prevent sensitive information from being revealed. While emails sent with the confidential mode make it slightly hard to make copies of your sensitive information and prevent unauthorized access, they can easily be cloned simply by using a device's screenshot feature.

Google has announced this morning that the feature has now gone live in the Gmail for Android app.

Before enabling the mode, Gmail will give you a few options to set the expiration of your email.

Google also notes that although confidential mode helps prevent the confidential email's recipients from accidentally sharing your email, it doesn't prevent them from taking screenshots or photos of the users messages and attachments. Senders can also do things like set expiration dates for messages so recipients will no longer have access to them. A new update informs that the Confidential Mode has now started rolling to the users in entirety. After that, tap on the three dot menu on the top-right of the screen, which will then show a "confidential mode" option. If you're now not seeing the new option in your Gmail, it means you might have to wait a few days. From here, tap compose confidential mode (it's the padlock icon with a clock on it). Once you click it, you'll see the various settings you can enable. If you choose to have a passcode, the recipient will have to enter the same to view the email content. However, users should still keep in mind that Gmail can not stop the users from screenshotting the mail.
