Gmail's next big feature..

In a recent announcement, it seems as though Gmail’s next big feature will see emails self-destruct in 10…9…8…7…

This exciting 'confidential mode' allows users to pre-select an option to click a lock that prevents the contents of their emails being forwarded, copied, pasted, printed or downloaded.

Alongside the revamp Gmail is undergoing with a cleaner design, smarter replies, the ability to snooze emails and a new way of using the Calendar and other apps.

All in all, the security-minded feature is pleasing for all those concerned about their digital footprints or worried about sending out content not intended for the recipient.

Let's see if it makes the final cut in the next release which is rumoured to be around May 8th.

In the compose screen, there’s a tiny lock icon called “confidential mode”. It says that the recipient won’t be able to forward email content, copy and paste, download or print the email. You can configure the expiration date so that your email disappears after 1 week, 1 month, multiple years, etc. You can also ask your recipient to confirm their identity with a passcode sent via text message.
