Gmail Confidential Mode Brings Self-Destructing Emails And Identity Verification For Recipients

And it will bring mobile Gmail's "smart reply" feature to the web along with offline support, according to the emailed notices.

Google had indeed acknowledged that such changes in Gmail are in the offing and that the company is working on it.

The report said some people who pay for Google's suite of services, called GSuite, received messages asking if they wanted to participate in a program to preview upcoming changes - including a Gmail redesign. The Android and iOS clients both use Material Design, but the web client's interface hasn't been updated for years.

When composing an email it appears users will be able to click a lock that prevents the contents of said communication being forwarded, copied, pasted, printed or downloaded.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires.




While users of G Suite never have their emails scanned for other Gmail users, in 2014, Google updated its terms of service to ensure users had full transparency in the context of Google scanning their email content.

Today, we're learning that Google is looking to add a new feature to Gmail: self-destructing emails.

There isn't much to ponder about the Gmail web design as Google hasn't revealed much yet. The same features will be available for the regular Gmail users as well. "We need a bit more time to compose ourselves, so can't share anything yet - archive this for now, and we'll let you know when it's time to hit send", shared the spokesperson.

While we still don't have a launch date, the new Gmail is expected to make its first official appearance at the company's annual developer conference next month on 8th.

A U.K. High Court judge did not agree and ruled Google had to erase search results pertaining to the man's prosecution and conviction for conspiracy to carry out surveilance, noting that he had expressed remorse for his actions, served his time, and that the record had little relevance to his current business dealings, The Telegraph reported.
