Now you can send auto-expiring emails from Gmail on your mobile

In a blog post detailing the new version of Gmail back in April, the tech giant noted: "A new confidential mode allows you to remove the option to forward, copy, download or print messages-useful for when you have to send sensitive information via email like a tax return or your social security number".

Over on its support pages, Google explains exactly what Confidential Mode is and what you can do with it: "You can send messages and attachments with Gmail's confidential mode to help protect sensitive information from unauthorized access". Recipients who are using a Gmail account will get the passcode via SMS, while those who are on a third-party email service can get it either via SMS or email. Passcodes can either be through a separate email (users not using Gmail) or through an SMS (just do not forget to enter their mobile # when you turn it on). Now when you send the mail to a particular recipient, they will have a specific time limit to check the mail after which it will be expired.

Implementing confidential mode is a fairly easy process that's similar across both Android and iOS.
