Google has announced this morning that the feature has now gone live in the Gmail for Android app. At least, it'll be a valuable tool for the business world once Google launches the feature for G Suite, which hasn't happened yet. Gmail introduced the Confidential Mode for its users to facilitate communications involving sensitive information over mail, a feature in high demand given the current concerns regarding data security.More news: Google staff condemn plan for censored Chinese search engine
Confidential mode for Android and iOS is rolling out now. This will allow users to send emails and attachments with confidential information therein, coupled with expiration dates as well as the ability to revoke access to the content whenever they want. These refer to the recipient's inability to copy, forward, download, or print content. Lastly, the confidential mode also allows the users to secure the attachments of their mail by a passcode. 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.More news: The moment a Chinese plane crash lands in the Philippines
However, it's worth noting that the new confidential mode doesn't stop anyone from just taking a screenshot of the confidential material, so keep that in mind. In order to start using Confidential mode, you must open Gmail, click Compose, and from the bottom right of the window tap Turn on confidential mode.More news: Atletico punish exhausted Real in extra-time to lift Super Cup
