Gmail for Android updated with Confidential mode

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Confidential Mode comes to Gmail Android app

This includes being able to control things like whether an email can be forwarded, copied, printed or downloaded.

While the new confidential mode may be useful for some users, Google cautions it is not meant to completely prevent sensitive information from being revealed.

Gmail users on Android have just been given access to a brand new feature that will allow them to send messages and attachments in the most secure manner.

Republicans blast Pearl Jam poster of burning White House
On top of another almost 3-hour, 30-song set, the show featured an - um - interesting poster designed in part by Ament himself. It's nearly impossible to go a week without listening to your music but that all ends tonight.

According to Google's support website, confidential emails have a sender-defined expiration date (from one day to five years), but access to the email can also be revoked at any time. 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.

With the new mode enabled, users can now set an expiration date for messages. After that, tap on the three dot menu on the top-right of the screen, which will then show a "confidential mode" option.

In case you want to renew the access, head over to sent emails, open that email, and tap on renew access, and the user will once again be able to view the content. Sure, it did not let me download the file, but I could very well take a screenshot, which is a bit flawed.

Khan's only challenger could be Shahbaz Sharif, but his Pakistan Muslim League party won only 92 seats in last month's elections. In a house of 342, the winning candidate was required to obtain at least 172 votes to become the Prime Minister.

Keep in mind that once the email is in Confidential Mode, any attachments, documents, or pictures will also be locked.

You will then have to choose a passcode which can be an OTP on the recipient's phone number, or you can skip it. Some of the features, like the refreshed interface on the web, were available right away with other new features coming later.
