The new Gmail design is now being tested inside of Google and with trusted partners.
It is believed that Google is working on a lock icon to activate the mode that will be introduced with the new design of the Gmail.
We didn't overlook the part where emails self-destruct in the Gmail redesign, don't worry. That means there will still be a record of users sending and receiving self-destructing emails, but not necessarily any info on what was contained in the message.
What is also unclear at this point is whether the feature will work with other email accounts or only for emails sent to other Gmail users.
This "confidential mode" will be available around the time that Google launches the Gmail redesign, which will reportedly be within the next few weeks.
Kylie Jenner Goes 'Mean Girls' for Coachella Weekend
Jenner completed the look with a pair of Acne boots and white ankle socks. " Stormi strolls ", she fittingly captioned the post. Kourtney and Kylie arrived at Coachella just one day after the birth of their niece by sister Khloé Kardashian .
As the name suggests, the tool will help users who want to be extra cautious about how their emails are accessed.
"You can configure the expiration date so that your email disappears after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc.", Tech Crunch writes. The interesting thing to note that when viewing the confidential message, copy/paste and print features were disabled, but TechCrunch's source was still able to take a screenshot of the email. "You can also ask your recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text message".
The search engine giant has another feature up its sleeve called "confidential mode" that will allow users to limit what recipients can do with the emails you send, preventing them from being forwarded, downloaded or printed, according to another report in The Verge.
A United Kingdom court has ruled in favor an unnamed businessman who wanted Google to remove search results of his past conviction history in a landmark "right to be forgotten" case.
So, no flames. No need to panic.
