Confidential Mode touched base with the new Gmail in April this year, and Android and iOS users are at last getting it.

Google says it doesn't get paid for giving third-party apps access to Gmail and checks them thoroughly.

Of course, the new feature doesn't stop someone from taking a screenshot of the email, but the updates do seem helpful. This mode will enable user to send emails to others that will self-destruct after a state of time.

Gmail's confidential mode is an interesting feature for email that provides low-level protection for your messages. One new feature just went live as Google has turned on their confidential mode for Gmail.

For users to make the most of the new feature they have to be in an email thread.

Referring to Brunson, Trump said: "They have a great Christian pastor there, he's a very innocent man". In the Gulf crisis, Turkey sided with Qatar, which was the rightful side.

Users can even set a two-factor authentication for the email.

Once this is done, attach the file that you want, and send the email to the recipient. Open the app and click on compose button to create a new email.

When sending a confidential email you also have the option of requiring a SMS passcode to open the message.

Before enabling, you'll have to set the expiration for your email between the given options of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, 5 years.

Tap on the three-dot-menu in the top right corner and then tap on Confidential mode. Google's Support Page warns that recipients with malicious programs set on their computer will be able to copy or download the messages or attachments.

Confidential mode could help prevent information leaks, but Google has a few caveats. The features offered by the Confidential Mode on Android are similar to the web version.

Confidential emails are the emails that self-destruct after a given length of time.

You will then have to choose a passcode which can be an OTP on the recipient's phone number, or you can skip it.

On the bottom of the screen, tap Remove access. The users will not face any issue opening those messages. Ensure you enter the recipients phone number not of your own.
