Recently the most awaited feature that many users were expecting has launched. Google launched the Confidential mode option to send all the confidential information with the best encryption.
The best thing is it is free for all Gmail users. You can easily access this option by enabling Confidential Mode in your Gmail account.
What is Confidential Mode & Why must we use this option?
The confidential mode is the security feature. By enabling a Confidential manner, users send sensitive information for legitimate purposes, such as banking details and other secret information, which limits the validity of the email in the sender’s inbox.
The passcode will send to the recipient to open the email you have sent.
To make this clear, let us check an example to understand it more clearly. Suppose you have a deal in purchasing a car and are sent essential documents with different details.
Once the deal is completed, there is no longer a need to have your document in others’ accounts. That’s what Gmail confidential mode exactly does.
You can set an expiration date, and the email will automatically be deleted after selecting the date. Sounds Good? Let us check how it works.
