Confidential Mode in Gmail arrives to Android and iOS
Hello, Hitech’ians welcome back to my another tech post. In this post, I will tell you about the new Gmail confidential mode which now arrives in iOS and Android.
Recently, Gmail has introduced the Confidential Mode for the mobile users and giving them more functionality than before. The confidential mode will allow the user to send the emails to others that will self-destruct after a set point in time. This feature has arrived for all iOS and Android users, and you don’t need to update your app to see this mode because Google is switching this rollout gradually through a server-side update procedure.
The Confidential Mode arrived with the new Gmail in April month this year, and now Android and iOS users are finally getting it. This mode, available while composing an email, prevents the recipient from copying/ pasting, forwarding, downloading and printing the content in the email. For the Gmail users, it generally shows up as a normal email, but for the non-Gmail recipients, it shows up as a link that opens up in a secure portal.you can also set an expiration date that will automatically delete the email after that set time is completed. You can set the time period to 1 week, 1 day, and till up to 5 years. Recipient verification is also available in Confidential Mode, which allows for standard or 2-factor SMS passcode
verification as well.For more detail,s you can visit the company’s support page.
In Android and iOS Gmail apps, it works in the similar manner.
1. Just start composing an email, and tap on the overflow menu to see a new option called
2. Once you tap on this, Gmail will ask you to choose an expiration date, and whether an SMS
code be used for verification or not.
Recently, Gmail for Android also received a new option to turn off the ‘Conversation view’, in which multiple emails are combined under one thread.
