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

As per some reports from the web, it seems like that Google is also working on a Confidential Mode which is said to bring the self-destructing emails along with some other privacy-focused changes.

The new capabilities are coming to consumer Gmail; no word on when G Suite users will get them.

Still, in the wake of data privacy scandals like Facebook's recent Cambridge Analytica incident, it's nice to see companies like Google offering their users extra privacy features. If an email is sent in confidential mode, the recipient won't be able to forward email content, download, copy and paste, or print the email. As per some screenshots, users will be able to set an expiration date so that the sent email disappears or is unreadable after a week or several years depending on what they choose.

Bill Cosby's attorney gives fiery opening statement in trial
The jury that time was not permitted to hear about the settlement, nor was Jackson allowed to take the stand. She says Cosby gave her a drink and forced her to perform oral sex as she faded in and out of consciousness.

It is believed that Google is working on a lock icon to activate the mode that will be introduced with the new design of the Gmail. The addition of Confidential Mode will grant users greater control over the emails they send, giving them the option of adding password protection to a message so they can not be opened by unauthorized people. It is speculated that this new feature is closely going to follow the update in Gmail's interface.

"We work hard to comply with the right to be forgotten, but we take great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest", Google said in a statement.

Further helping to secure email communications, senders have the option to require the recipient to verify their identity with a passcode before opening an email sent in Confidential Mode. TechCrunch's tipster Chaim also discovered an interesting new feature in the new Gmail. Unless protection is offered against the incredibly simple process of taking a screenshot of any supposedly confidential mail, the whole feature might well be useless, and will simply protect against inbox searches post the expiry of the email. The recipient had to log into their Google account once again to view the content. It's also unclear if the integration is going to work better in the future when everybody is using the new Gmail. When users try to open an expired e-mail, they'll find an expired link to the message and will no longer be available for viewing.
