The life saving option in Gmail - "Confidential Mode"



Once you press the “send” button in gmail, it’s gone and it’s out of your control. You can’t do anything about it. Either you can press “undo” as quickly as you can or ask the relevant person or party to delete it. What if you lose both the chances? Though we ask a relevant party to delete, there is only a 50% chance that it will get deleted, maybe it is deleted after taking a copy, so you are actually helpless at this moment.


So to get some control into your hand Google has introduced an amazing feature called “Confidential Mode” to keep your things safe & secure. You can call it a “life saving option.” Because this option will not let a person forward the mail, will not let anybody to download or copy.



Gmail prevents a person from doing above 3 things and also did you know that you can make an email get expired or vanished according to your preferences?

Yes now you can do it….

After typing the email & attaching the documents, you can click on the clock icon (turn confidential mode on/off) which is found next to insert photo icon which is in the latter part of the composing window. After clicking on the clock icon you can select the time according to your preferences, you can select, by when your email should get disappeared.


Also you don’t have to wait for the due date, you can simply go to sent mails and click on “remove access” and it will be unavailable for the end party. Also you can “renew access” for them.




After all isn’t it a cool feature?

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
