Gmail's new self-destructing emails are now rolling out to mobile devices

| 19 August, 2018, 15:28

Gmail's confidential mode can be used to help protect sensitive information.

The new confidential mode gives users the ability to place restrictions on emails as part of an effort to keep them from getting into the hands of people who should not have them. Notably, Google added a lot of features to the new Gmail some of which included Snooze, smart reply and many more.

The sender of a confidential email can also require recipients to enter a pass code (sent via SMS or email) to open the message.

While Gmail users will have no trouble opening the confidential message, non-Gmail customers will get an email passcode to authenticate from a secure web portal.

The Confidential Mode allows the senders to put a time stamp on their emails, like a countdown, after which the email disappears from the recipients' accounts.

For users to make the most of the new feature they have to be in an email thread.


Even after you've set an expiration date for an email, you can remove access to it early.

To begin with, ensure that your Gmail app is up to date with the latest version 8.7.15.

The app will then present a list of options related to the new feature.

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.

It is worth noting once an email is sent any self-destruct date that was chosen can not be altered.

Unlike Telegram with its screenshot alerts however, Gmail still allows recipients to take screenshots of confidential emails. I sent an email to myself with confidential mode, the attachment was a photo.
