This Gmail Will Self Destruct: Confidential Mode Is Coming

Gmail for Android

Among the many features that were spotted earlier this week, TechCrunch reports that a Confidential Mode will also be introduced which will allow users to choose whether they want the recipient to be able to forward the email content, restrict them from copy and pasting, downloading or printing them, and even choose if they want the email to self-destruct.

Besides, we now find out a new surprise feature integrated by Google. "We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet - archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send". This new version of Gmail is said to have several revamps like the ability to snooze emails and a Smart Replay feature on the Web interface besides having a cleaner look like the desktop Gmail application.

"We are pleased that the Court recognized our efforts [to comply with the Right to Be Forgotten], and we will respect the judgments they have made in this case", a Google spokesman said about the new ruling, The Telegraph reported. 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. However, the feature is still under development, as the option "Learn More" now redirects to a blank page.

Neither Washington nor Moscow want to see an escalation of the overall long-running conflict in Syria, say analysts. Khamenei has harshly responded to the Syrian operation of the West Coalition, APA reports.

Today, we're learning that Google is looking to add a new feature to Gmail: self-destructing emails. The interesting thing to note that when viewing the confidential message, copy/paste and print features were disabled, but TechCrunch's source was still able to take a screenshot of the email. This feature is already available for people who use the Inbox by Gmail app or Boomerang, a third-party Gmail tool.

Would these features make you feel better about the security of your email account?

Apparently, while Google's self-expiring emails aren't encrypted, users will have the option of confirming the recipient's identity by entering a person's phone number and sending a passcode in a text message. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears. This greatly improves speech separation quality when more than one person is present, according to the post. Enter your email to be subscribed to our newsletter.
