Google is reportedly introducing a confidential mode that will prevent the recipient from downloading, printing, copying, pasting or forwarding the message you send them.

Google last overhauled Gmail's web look in 2011, opting for a more spaced-out, cleaner look as part of an effort to unify the way its products appear on desktop and mobile.

The self-destructing emails in the new Gmail design seem to function like the popular client ProtonMail, and when a new "confidential" mode, you can make it so that an email becomes unreadable after a certain amount of time.

The password-protecting of email is something that will be welcomed by many users, and it is going to be implemented through the use of a code sent out via SMS.

The updated version of Gmail for web will also include a sidebar so users can access Calendar, the notetaking app Keep, and other services side-by-side with their email, according to reports.

"We work hard to comply with the right to be forgotten, but we take great care not to remove search results that are in the public interest", Google said in a statement. In the past, Google has said user privacy is worth just $25 and that Gmail users don't have legitimate privacy concerns. Recipients will then receive an e-mail that requires them to click a link and input their Google credentials to view the e-mail. The company might showcase new Gmail features at the Google I/O 2018, which will commence on the 8th of May. If you access it from your email, it's mostly a simple check list with due dates. The message behind the link disappears after some time, but this doesn't mean that the intermediate email also disappears. Additionally, the service could let senders an option to ask for recipient's identity with a passcode sent via text message. It further states that the recipient won't be able to forward, download or copy the email's contents, and attachments will be disabled.

Google has confirmed that the launch is near, but they haven't released specifics at this time.

End-to-end encryption is also not mentioned by Google anywhere. The features "won't stop people from taking a screenshot or a photo of an email", The Verge notes Friday.
