Google is improving it’s Mailing Platform called Gmail by adding a new feature titled “Confidential mode”, guess you wondering what it means well, Gmail’s new Confidential Mode tries to give you a bit of control back by offering message expiration dates.
Confidential mode protects sensitive content in your emails by creating expiration dates or revoking previously sent messages and removing options for recipients to forward, copy, print, and download.
To make it simple, this mode lets you add ‘expiration date’ to emails, a post which the email is no longer viewable by the recipient. This mode helps reduce the risk of confidential information being accidentally shared with the wrong people.
In Addition, you can also require additional authentication via text message to view an email.
In case of Admin can opt-in to the beta by going to the Admin console and navigating to Apps > G Suite > Settings for Gmail > User settings. Here they will be able to select the option to Enable confidential mode.
Gmail confidential mode features are:
- Allow users to set an expiration date for messages or revoke access at any time.
- Disable options to forward, copy, print, and download the email body and attachments.
- Allow users to set SMS passcodes wherein recipients will get a passcode by text message to be able to access the email sent using confidential mode.
- Let users choose to remove access early before the expiration date.
If your users send or receive messages in Gmail confidential mode, Vault will retain, preserve, search and export confidential mode messages. Once Gmail confidential mode is activated in the Admin console, users can send Gmail confidential mode emails.
