Google brings Gmail's confidential mode to mobile phone users

Google recently announced that the Gmail confidential mode, for mobile phone users, will soon be rolling out to the masses.

This feature has been available with the desktop users since the previous year. With it, the mailers have the liberty to restrict the availability time of content to the recipient, and even require them to submit a SMS passcode before accessing the mail. Even though people with malicious intents still have the opportunity to take a screenshot before the mail expires, this feature still adds a layer of protection to the shared content.

This update is similar across all smart phone users, including Android and iOS. Following very basic steps, users can mark their emails as confidential, and set a time limit for visibility. In fact, these settings can be altered even after the mail has been sent, by simply visiting the sent item from the sent folder.
