Gmail is by far the best email service that has come out in a long time. Yes, there are alternatives such as Yahoo and Hotmail which are also popular but Gmail is the most popular among them. Moreover, it is developed by Google so it is offered for free without any hidden costs.
It was also said that Emails will be dead in the future. However, there are no signs of stopping Gmail and Email usage has actually increased even in this age of social messaging.
Also, add to this the fact that Gmail got a massive overhaul very recently. This was a complete redesign of the Gmail that we browse daily on the Web as well as on the smartphones. Although the Gmail for Android and iOS redesign is still pending, we have got a new feature introduced into Gmail.
What is Confidential Mode in Gmail?
This feature is known as the Confidential mode. With the help of Confidential mode, you can still send emails to someone you want as you would do normally. But, this emails will be sent with a time limit such as a week or a month after which they will expire. Now, if the sender doesn’t read the emails in this time period then he will have to resend the mail again.
Also, the sender has the ability to revoke access to this email whenever needed. This means that you, the sender will have all the rights to your email if you are using the confidential mode. In order to turn this feature on inside your Gmail app for Android or iOS, follow these steps.
Open the Gmail app, click on the Menu icon for Android or iOS and click on more. Here, you have to click on Confidential mode and then send an email. Also, make sure to customize the confidential mode by selecting the expiry time limit and other settings.
