Gmail's 'Confidential Mode' arrives on mobile devices

Gmail seems to have improved its security. According to a tweet sheared by Gmail on the 16th of August, ''Confidential mode is now available on mobile devices and can help you protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. Learn more about this feature''. The Process is simple Once you've turned on confidential mode for a specific email, you can set an expiration date and passcode so that you can restrict access to the email either in the web interface or via SMS. Recipients of these confidential emails won't be able to copy, paste, download, print or forward the message, and attachments will be disabled.
That doesn't stop anyone from taking a screenshot of your message, however. As Google notes, "Although confidential mode helps prevent the recipients from accidentally sharing your email, it doesn't prevent recipients from taking screenshots or photos of your messages or attachments. Recipients who have malicious programs on their computer may still be able to copy or download your messages or attachments. This feature isn't available for G Suite customers at this time."
