There Might Be A New Self-Destructing Message Feature In The Gmail Revamp

Other new features include cosmetic changes to bring Gmail up-to-date with its current application design guidelines, which Google calls "Material Design", and new features from its Inbox mail client. Google is reportedly introducing a confidential mode that will prevent the recipient from downloading, printing, copying, pasting or forwarding the message you send them. A user can set the expiration date for the email following which the mail would be deleted at the time set by the user.

The expiring emails feature works similarly to the expiring emails feature in ProtonMail as the email becomes unreadable after some time. We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features. Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email. The company is rumored to be including three layouts, a sidebar to view your calendar or notes, smart replies with prewritten responses and a snooze button to mute email threads until you're written to answer them. That's right, Google is taking a page out of the "Mission Impossible" playbook with this feature, which should be helpful when sending sensitive or confidential information over email that could potentially end up in the wrong hands. "You can also ask your recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text message". The company isn't revealing exactly what the new design for Gmail looks like. It's less dramatic - and it's due to a security feature Google will test out on the new Gmail. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears.

Her parents had to flee South Africa during the anti-Apartheid struggle. "Was she a sinner or was she a saint?" It was however her grandson Bambatha Mandela who threw the spanner in the works‚ hitting out at her critics.

Moreover, Gmail will also allow you to set a deadline for certain emails, which, when reached, will trigger the automatic complete deletion of the chosen emails.

It's worth pointing out that Confidential Mode's protections will likely be relatively easy to circumvent. However, the leaker was able to seize a screenshot of the email content.
