In a move to further beef up the security of Gmail, new alerts will appear when the app spots what it believes could be a malicious email.
The popular email service has rolled out a major revamp loaded with new features to help users be more productive. Activating new Gmail for yourself is fairly easy. To delete account data from your device disable offline mail and save changes. With this new feature, Google is adding an extra layer of security and privacy by making users enter a passcode generated via SMS in order to open emails.
Google is rolling out a new feature for Gmail web users.
With Confidential Mode, the message itself is never actually transmitted to the other person. On clicking, a pop-up menu will appear with the options to set an expiration date, ranging from 1 day to 5 years. The feature bars recipients from forwarding, copying/pasting or downloading or even printing the email contents. This feature can be helpful for businesses that often expect more control over how their emails are distributed and accessed.
But Google's Confidential Mode in Gmail isn't foolproof. So, don't worry if you haven't received it yet.
One tap and you'll never get an email from that company again. Under this functionality Google will scan through the mail and based on the context, it will suggest some probable replies to the users. Using this feature, Gmail lets users respond to emails with the help of some quick phrases.
Although, Google has now explicitly named this feature this isn't something entirely new to the platform. In fact, smart replies existed in Gmail apps for Android and iOS for quite some time. For example, you can sync messages from 20 days prior. Google now officially made it possible to read, compose, and reply to your messages without an internet connection. After tapping the Compose button a user will be able to see a new icon with a lock and clock in the compose window. These notifications are a result of Gmail's ability to determine what email conversations might be important for you. Here's everything you need to know about the Gmail redesign 2018.
Google can now instantly warn users if it suspects an email is from a fraudulent source.
Now, Gmail allows users to customise their inbox view. As it gathers artificial intelligence on you it would give you better and precise options.
