New Gmail on the web will let you set a lifespan for emails

Gmail has great changes on the web, and a recently revealed feature that we can expect to see in a few weeks sounds particularly intriguing.

The Verge, who reported for the first time that the Gmail web client has a new look and feel and new features as smart answers soon, now has details about a new & Confidential Mode & # 39; for greater security in the service.

Confidential Mode will give senders more control over what happens to their emails after they are sent. This includes not allowing emails to be forwarded, printed, downloaded or copied.

Users can also choose to request an access code to open emails. Google will create and send access codes to recipients via SMS, which presumably must be entered before viewing an email.

Finally, emails may expire after a certain period of time, a self-destruct feature seen in many messaging services and in Microsoft Outlook.

We're likely to hear more about the redesigned Gmail on the web and its new confidential mode during Google IO 2018, scheduled to go down in Mountain View, California, May 8-10.
