Gmail to soon receive 'Confidential Mode' and 'Self-Destructing' Emails

Gmail for Android

The update is also expected introduce smart reply, and easy ways to access G-Suite apps from within Gmail. It is still not clear whether the Gmail service users will be able to send the confidential/self-destructing emails to the other email platforms or not. Gmail's web interface hasn't changed in years - you can probably expect a new interface that follows Google's Material design language.

The new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners.

The initial purge of search results applied to Google's local search pages covering the EU's 28 member nations and four other European countries, encompassing more than 500 million people. Google has confirmed it will be rolling out a new version of its email application, Gmail, in the spring of 2018. Working on an email service is hard as you have to be compatible with all sorts of email providers and email clients. The Verge notes, though, that recipients will still be able to take screenshots or photos of these confidential emails. "But it doesn't seem to be stopping Google as the company is now evolving beyond the simple POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols", the report reads. This "confidential mode" should prevent people from forwarding, printing or downloading the e-mail and may also allow senders to require recipients to verify their identity with a personal identification number.

So, if you send or receive messages to your Gmail inbox in "confidential mode", they will self-destruct (i.e. you can't copy, download or print them) upon the scheduled expiration date. If your boss asks if you've completed one of your Google tasks, you can scroll through those without closing the email.

TechCrunch also pointed out that when a ProtonMail user sends an expiring message to another ProtonMail user, the email looks like a regular email in the box. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears. Even then, like TechCrunch reported, the Confidential Mode is available to a handful of users right now.
