Google told us more about how that ‘expiring emails’ feature works

No Comments News Technology

Gmail’s massive redesign includes a feature that has previously only been available on corporate email services, encryption-oriented programs like ProtonMail and Signal, and, well, Snapchat: disappearing messages.

It’s part of Gmail’s new “confidential mode,” which will supposedly give users an added layer of security when sending emails. This includes the ability to password protect emails, unsend messages, and prevent others from forwarding, printing, copying, or downloading messages. Disappearing messages come through the ability to set expiration dates for emails — which means they will “disappear” from inboxes after a specified amount of time.
