Technology Inceptions

Google introduced a "confidential mode" that allowed users to remove options for forwarding, copying, downloading or printing messages. The introduction of the feature was to help users feel more secure when sending "sensitive information".

"You can also make a message expire after a set period of time to help you stay in control of your information", said by Google. Currently the feature was only available on desktop platform. With the new update the feature has made its way to mobile platform.

Users are able to set expirations for emails also choose whether a password is required to access the mail. Google’s Undo Send feature has been saving people from embarrassing typos, mistakes, and other email taboos for years on the web version of Gmail. Now, the feature is being carried over to the official mobile version of Google’s email app.
