There are many such features on Gmail, which many people do not know about. One of them is Confidential Mode. If you want to send an e-mail whose access only you have, then this mode gives you the facility. In Confidential mode, we mail to someone, but access to that email is not always with him. For some time he can see or read that mail. In this feature, we can put the date of expiration date of our email. After applying this setting, that email cannot be forwarded, copied, printed or downloaded.

We are telling you how you can put Confidential Mode in your sent email:

At the same time, with the option of SMS passcode, you will have to put the password on the email that will go to it through text message. Just remember that while entering the passcode, send the number to the person to whom you are sending the email.


7. Finally click on Save.
