I'd tell you, but then I'd have to kill you

Sending private messages via email is risky – the recipient could forward it to your arch nemesis or keep it as blackmail.

Luckily, Google has introduced “confidential mode” to help protect your messages.

You can:

  • Set an expiration date for messages
  • Revoke access to messages any time (even before their expiration date)
  • Require a passcode to open messages


Confidential mode also prevents recipients from forwarding, copying, printing, and downloading your messages.

It’s not perfect, of course; Google notes that confidential mode “doesn't prevent recipients from taking screenshots or photos of your messages or attachments” – so if the recipient is untrustworthy, it’s probably best to avoid emailing them entirely.

Still, Gmail’s confidential mode helps you protect sensitive information from unauthorized access without the hassle of encryption.

You'll find more information from Google, including a video demo, here.
