Password Protected Feature Introduce by Gmail

With Gmail’s password-protected emails, you can rest assured that your emails are safe and secure.

  • Open Gmail on your computer
  • Click on Compose.
  • In the bottom right of the window, click Turn on confidential mode.
  • In case you’ve already turned on confidential mode for an email, go to the bottom of the email, then click Edit.
  • Now, set an expiration date and passcode.
  • These settings impact both the message text and any attachments
  • If you opt for “No SMS passcode,” this means recipients using the Gmail app will be able to open it directly. However, those who do not use Gmail will receive a passcode via email
  • On the other hand, selecting “SMS passcode” implies that recipients will receive a passcode via text message. It is essential to ensure that you enter the phone number of the recipient, not your own.
  • After this, click Save and send the email
