Google has already announced the Gmail Confidential Mode Beta in March and this feature will be Generally Available (GA) on 25th of June and this will be “Turned ON” for all domains with Gmail enabled. So if you are a G Suite customer this might be really useful for your organization.

What Is This Confidential Mode?

Sending sensitive information via an email quite a crucial option for an organization and this feature might be really useful, when sending such sensitive information across the recipients.

Email messages sending with confidential mode protects your sensitive information from unauthorized access. Also, it protects your message forwarding, copying, printing or downloading the content or attachments leaving reading is the only option for your readers.

Other important option is senders can set the expiration date for the email and revoke the email access whenever they need.

If you are an G Suite administrator it leaves you three options to be setup for your organization:

  • Disable: Prevents users to use this option for their emails
