Gmail Confidential Mode

Gmail’s confidential mode gives you more control over who can see the information you send in email.

Send messages and attachments with confidential mode by setting an expiration date for messages or revoking access to the email at any time. Recipients of the confidential message will not be able to forward, copy, print, or download the email or attachments.

When a message is sent using confidential mode, the body of the email and any attachments are replaced by a link. The recipient clicks the link to view the message.

Note: Confidential mode limits users from forwarding, printing, and downloading your email, but it doesn’t prevent recipients from taking screenshots or photos of the message or attachments.
