How to use Gmail's 'Confidential Mode' on smartphones

Gmail Brings Confidential Emails to Mobile

Google has been silently rolling out new features and changes in design to its Gmail app on both iOS and Android devices. In that case, just open the Gmail app, and tap on the menu icon on the left, reaching Sent.

If Chief Quimby used Gmail, he'd know about the new mobile Confidential Mode with expiring messages and probably have saved himself quite a bit of trouble getting information to Inspector Gadget. 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.

To be honest, I'm surprised this feature wasn't already present in the Gmail app, but in my own testing, I can confirm that it wasn't present in versions prior to 8.7, which landed around mid-July. Also, the confidential mode feature isn't now available for G Suite customers. 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. Hence, you can easily send emails and projects as an attachment.




Gmail's Confidential Mode launched on desktop earlier this year, but it's new to Android and iOS. That is a very secure way to view an email, and you can definitely send sensitive and confidential material to others. This is critical that they make sure that the email expires after a certain date and has high security so, no one else can open the email. There, you'll find an option for configuring the Confidential Mode. At least you know that the email will not be available after expiration time. Gmail is our best friend when it comes to mail transactions. Even the online criminals can not crack this new confidential mode unless they have your password. The users who use gmail, will see these messages as like normal mails.

On the bottom of the screen, tap Remove access.

Confidential mode prevents users from forwarding, copying, printing, or downloading messages, however, users can still take screenshots of content. Here you need to enter the recipients' number.
