Google Adds ‘Confidential Mode’ To Gmail Android App

While confidential mode is undoubtedly a more secure way to send sensitive information such as a photo of your driver's license or private documents, Google can't stop a recipient from simply taking a screenshot of their screen once they open the email.

China lodges WTO complaint over renewable energy tariffs
China says the USA tariffs and the us "decision to subsidize renewable energy firms" has distorted the global market. It said on May 14 it had issued a request to the WTO for a dispute settlement process with Washington.

If Confidential Mode has made its way to your account, you can make use of it by tapping the Compose button in Gmail on iOS or Android, and then selecting More Confidential Mode. Find your email set to self-destruct in the Sent folder, open it, and tap "Remove Access".

Trump Says U.S. Won't Pay Turkey for Pastor's Release
Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, visited Ankara on Tuesday, branding the U.S. sanctions an illegitimate policy. Trump, who counts evangelical Christians among his core supporters, has increasingly championed the pastor's case.

Google has announced this morning that the feature has now gone live in the Gmail for Android app. There's a new option in the overflow menu at the top called "Confidential mode". This means that if you want to send sensitive information via e-mail, you'll be able to do so with added security. Of course, the feature is only available in the latest iteration of Gmail and is now limited to mobile devices, meaning it won't be accessible for those using the "classic Gmail" layout in a browser. But Gmail users today can use the new update to protect their messages instead of following in the grumpy footsteps of the cartoon cop.

Trump renews criticism of Turkey over United States pastor

It is worth noting once an email is sent any self-destruct date that was chosen can not be altered. You have the ability to set an expiration date as well as a passcode for the email, if you so choose. Once you click it, you'll see the various settings you can enable. Also, if you use an SMS passcode, you might need to give Google your recipient's phone number (if the company doesn't already have it). I'm sure Google can work out something similar.
