Gmail's new ‘confidential mode' offers more privacy controls — but don't get too comfortable

By Jaclyn Cosgrove

In rolling out major updates to Gmail, Google announced that the popular email service will soon feature a new “confidential mode” that promises to give users more control over who sees the emails they send, and for how long.

With the new privacy feature, users will be able to remove recipients' options to forward, copy, download or print specific messages.

Confidential mode “is going to be presented by Google as all these wonderful features that customers are out there asking for, and that they're meeting customer demand, and while some of that may be true, it's necessary to remember it's also all about maximizing ways people will be enticed to continue to stay on Google's platform as much as possible so they can monetize your data, and when dealing with Google, one should never forget that,” Simpson said.
