Gmail Confidential Mode rolling out on Android; here’s how to use it

19 August, 2018, 15:24 | Author: Larry Hoffman

Google's big Gmail redesign earlier this year added a handful of new features, including Confidential Mode.

Google has also advised you can revoke access to an email marked confidential whenever you feel like it before the expiration date by opening the email in your Sent folder and selecting "Remove access" at the bottom.

Of course, the new feature doesn't stop someone from taking a screenshot of the email, but the updates do seem helpful.

Jose Mourinho confirms Manchester United's captain for the season
Brighton face all of last season's top four in their next six games , beginning with Manchester United this weekend. They have a great coach, Chris, good players, good team, attractive stadium but hard to play.

Once you've turned on confidential mode for a specific email, you can set an expiration date and passcode so that you can restrict access to the email either in the web interface or via SMS.

In case you want to renew the access, head over to sent emails, open that email, and tap on renew access, and the user will once again be able to view the content. Once the email is sent, the self-destruct timer can not be changed.

Confidential mode for Android and iOS is rolling out now. This is a server-side update, so you don't need to go looking for an update in the Google Play Store.

The Tensor Cores provide up to 500 trillion operations per second that fill in where the real time ray-tracing comes up short. The RT Cores can churn through ray-tracing performance at a staggering 25x faster than previous Pascal GPUs, Nvidia claims.

Confidential messages will be strictly about conveying the message to the person you choose to send it to.

Tap on the three-dot-menu in the top right corner and then tap on Confidential mode. SMS-based passcodes are the only option if your recipient is using a Gmail account - recipients using another email service can receive either SMS or email passcodes. If you're now not seeing the new option in your Gmail, it means you might have to wait a few days.

It is worth noting once an email is sent any self-destruct date that was chosen can not be altered.

You can also enable mandatory passcode for accessing the email. I sent an email to myself with confidential mode, the attachment was a photo. Recipients may still be able to do things like take screenshots of emails or even using a camera to take a picture.
