The report further suggests that the Confidential Mode is said to allow the users to send self-destructing emails which can be set to prevent the recipient from downloading, forwarding, printing or even copying email content.
The Gmail overhaul, apart from a complete redesign, will also pack a handful of modern features you usually find on third-party clients. Apparently, the new self-destructing emails feature which will allow the users to put a timestamp to their mails after which the email won't be available anymore has been termed as the "Confidential Mode" in Gmail. We'd seen drafts of a redesign dating back almost a year ago and heard some descriptions of the new look, but after yesterday's news, several sources shared images of the new design itself - including some new features. You'll soon be able to send expiring emails. This might not be a problem in practical terms, considering the fact that the message will still be unreadable, but it's a little different than deleting an old email completely. This will be especially useful for sending confidential emails or emails that you feel should be read and deleted for privacy purposes.Читайте также: France, Saudi Arabia agree on need to curb Iranian 'expansionism'
It'll also be possible to ask recipients to confirm their identities with a text-based passcode. The report describes that on the recipient's side, the person used the existing version of Gmail and received a link to view the confidential email.
An email sent to G Suite administrators confirmed that the redesign is coming, with improved access to G Suite apps, such as Google Calendar, from within Gmail; Smart Reply; email snoozing; and offline support. Moreover, when you activate the confidential mode the emails can't be copied, printed or forwarded. The interface seems cleaner and more intuitive to use, and a new sidebar on the right should make multi-tasking easier too. This is because Google is now asking users to confirm their Google account to view the confidential email. Users will be able to select a date when the email will expire, after which the receiver will no longer be able to see the email.
