Confidential Mode in Gmail - from a sender's and recipient's point of view.

If you have enabled the new Gmail you will see that a new feature is the ability to use confidential mode in Gmail. Confidential mode allows you to send an email that recipients will not have the option to forward email contents, copy/paste, download, nor print. You can also set an expiration date of 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, 3 months, or 5 years. You can also send an SMS password code if desired.

Embedded below is a 1 minute and 34 second YouTube tutorial from both the sender's and receiver's point of view.

One thing to point out, I did read that if you do not see Confidential Mode - try going under settings and then toggle conversation view to on. I myself did not have to do this - but read a few places that some users did. Not sure why or if this would make a difference - just passing on.



Take care,
