Gmail working on self-expiring emails

As presented by TechCrunch, a small lock icon appears in the compose window for an email which represents "Confidential Mode". It is speculated that this new feature is closely going to follow the update in Gmail's interface.

Google is introducing "Confidential Mode" in its new Gmail design to be launched very soon.

You'll also be able to send emails in "Confidential Mode", which will block the recipient from forwarding, copying and pasting, downloading, or printing the email.


Google said in a statement that it "works hard to comply" with the right to be forgotten, but added that it takes "great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest".

The revamp looks like it'll feature a new, clean design, smart replies, the ability to snooze emails and a new pane for the Calendar and Keep apps. The new Gmail may have a feature that asks the recipient to type in SMS passcode to open the mail. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again. This feature which is gaining attention from all the big tech giants hasn't been left out by the Gmail team and is possibly ready to be pushed ahead to the users. While ProtonMail deletes the message completely after a certain amount of time, Google sends a link to the message in the email which becomes inaccessible after a certain amount of time - leaving the intermediate email in the inbox. That means you never have to leave your inbox to create a to-do list or reschedule a meeting. This might not be a problem in practical terms, considering the fact that the message will still be unreadable, but it's a little different than deleting an old email completely. When viewing the confidential message, copy and paste as well as the print feature were disabled - it didn't stop our tipster from taking a screenshot of the email though. Also, there might be other tools available in the market using which a user can record the email that they have received. It's also unclear if the integration is going to work better in the future when everybody is using the new Gmail.

Moreover, there will be an option for setting an expiration date on sent emails.
