New Gmail confidential mode goes live

Gmail has rolled out its Confidential Mode to the Gmail iOS and Android apps.

Google is today rolling out one of Gmail's modern features to mobile devices. You can use the feature to set an expiration for your emails, letting you remove an email and its content after a certain period of days. Along with the control options, users can decide whether they will require recipients to obtain an SMS passcode before they can access the email message.

Confidential Mode sends emails that self-destruct after a given length of time.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) digital privacy advocacy group thinks that this new mode isn't secure at all, and might even lend users a false sense of security. Now when you send the mail to a particular recipient, they will have a specific time limit to check the mail after which it will be expired.

For users of the Gmail web client, Google's support page notes that confidential mode isn't available in the classic version of Gmail.

Autostrade said it would work with investigators, and that it was already assessing how to rebuild the bridge. Autostrade said work to reinforce the slab under the road surface was going on at the time of the collapse.

With the new add-on installed, users can add a file to an email message by directly linking to a folder or a file stored in Dropbox. If you have the update app, open it and tap on Compose icon on the bottom right. If you choose to have a passcode, the recipient will have to enter the same to view the email content.

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

Tap on the three-dot-menu in the top right corner and then tap on Confidential mode.

Putting your email in Confidential Mode only takes a few steps. Once you click it, you'll see the various settings you can enable. I sent an email to myself with confidential mode, the attachment was a photo.
