New Gmail feature to allow users to send 'confidential' emails

Confidential mode has been recently added to Gmail for Android, which is meant to help users protect sensitive information from unauthorized access.

Head over to the Gmail app on your mobile device.

Google has announced this morning that the feature has now gone live in the Gmail for Android app. When the Google Confidential Mode is activated, you can set an expiration date for the email.

The feature allows you to specify an expiration date or manually revoke access to a message. On the correct version-and/or if the switch has been flipped for you-when you send an email you'll get notification down at the bottom of the screen. You can even set a password for the emails you send.

This feature has been available with the desktop users since the previous year.

With this, let's say you're having to email a bunch of sensitive documents for a home purchase or a photo of a driver's license for some reason.
