Google is said to be rolling out Gmail’s “confidential mode” by default for G Suite users from the 25th of June, this feature was initially available for all personal accounts ever since Gmail got their mid-2018 redesign.
Confidential mode is actually a powerful tool in Gmail where if you need to send any sensitive content in an email to anyone at work you can do so without having to be concerned if anyone but the intended recipient is able to read (having in mind that your workplace uses G Suite as the email client). This tool allows you to set an expiration date for your message which will then cut off access to that email when the day arrives. Even though the email is still visible in the recipient’s inbox list, they will not be able to forward the email to anyone else nor will they be allowed to copy the contents of the email and the user has the access to revoke access at any point.
Currently, in personal Gmail accounts, this tool (as introduced in 2018) is located as the last in the same row as the “Send” button. So if you want to give it a try, all you have to do is click on the locked clock icon which will then prompt you to set the necessary parameters. Once it is done, it will make the email a confidential email. The “confidential mode” will be located in the same position in G suite once it’s rolled out for G suite accounts.
