Google Testing Self Destructing Email For Gmail

Ignacio Serricchio LOST IN SPACE

As presented by TechCrunch, a small lock icon appears in the compose window for an email which represents "Confidential Mode". Gmail for web hasn't received a major overhaul in years so these new features should be interesting to see.

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. The self-destructing emails will allow the users to set a time for a week, month, or year or even multiple years. The tech giant confirmed that it's working on new design for its most popular email service. Some of the features of the new Gmail were detailed in media reports.

Mashable said that Google has left no hints as to what the update will mean for your personal email use, though. In order to address the issue and to give better control to users, Google is bringing self-destructing email feature.

Instead, Gmail sends the recipient a dummy email with a hyperlink to the actual self-expiring message, which is what actually disappears when time expires. As for recipients, they are expected to receive a link for expiring email which can be viewed by logging into their Gmail account again.

Based on those screenshots, expiring emails work pretty much like expiring emails in ProtonMail.

TechTimes reports that Google is reportedly working on a new deep learning system that will be capable of singling out one person's voice amongst a crowd of people.

While these "confidential" emails are hard to forward or copy for the sender, it's important to note that there's no word of end-to-end encryption - suggesting that Google can still read the contents of your emails and comply with law enforcement if they're required to give information from your account - so don't send anything you wouldn't be fine with the authorities seeing. She and her co-plaintiffs hope to get their case approved as a class-action lawsuit, which could open it up to thousands of women who have worked at Google. It is unclear if the "confidential" expiring mails will be end-to-end encrypted. The interface seems cleaner and more intuitive to use, and a new sidebar on the right should make multi-tasking easier too.
