Gmail to soon receive 'Confidential Mode' and 'Self-Destructing' Emails

According to a source who talked to TechCrunch, Gmail's new "confidential mode" lets users create self-expiring emails that disappear after a specific amount of time. The new feature will allow users to set the expiration date. Another report by TechCrunch has also discovered that the new Gmail is likely to have a feature that a lot of users might find very useful. From Android phones to what we watch on YouTube, even our work and personal email are mostly done through Google's Gmail service. Unless protection is offered against the incredibly simple process of taking a screenshot of any supposedly confidential mail, the whole feature might well be useless, and will simply protect against inbox searches post the expiry of the email.

Earlier this week we delivered word of Google's forthcoming revamp of its Gmail web client, likely to officially debut at the I/O conference next month. "But it doesn't seem to be stopping Google as the company is now evolving beyond the simple POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols", the report reads. And as we inch closer to the official launch, reports of the new features have begun pouring in abundance. In the compose window of Gmail, there is a small lock icon named "Confidential Mode", which states that the email recipient won't be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email.

Zuckerberg also said that Facebook's major investments in security "will significantly impact our profitability going forward". It might be the start of a whole new week, but the ongoing Facebook privacy scandal is showing no sign of cooling off.

Further, Gmail will also ask the recipient to punch in an SMS passcode in order to confirm their identity, before the recipient is being allowed to see the email. There will also be passcodes sent by Google to open emails. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again. As reported by The Verge, the company is working on a redesign of Gmail. When a user sends an email using the confidential mode, the mail will look like any other email.
