How to Use Gmail Confidential Mode: A Step-by-Step Guide

Gmail is one of the most popular email services in the world, with millions of users relying on it for their personal and professional communication needs. 

Here's a Cool Tip about one of its most useful features: Confidential Mode

This feature allows you to send emails with an extra layer of security and privacy, ensuring that your sensitive information stays confidential. 

With this Cool Tip, we’ll explain how to use Gmail confidential mode in a step-by-step guide.

  • Log in to your Gmail Account
The first step is to log in to your Gmail account. 

If you don't have an account, create one by visiting the Gmail website and following the prompts.
  • Compose a New Email
Once you are logged in, click on the Compose button to start writing a new email.
  • Enable Confidential Mode
In the bottom of the compose window, you will see a small lock with a clock icon. Click on it to enable confidential mode.
  • Set Expiration Date and Passcode
Once you have enabled confidential mode, you can set an expiration date for the email and a passcode that the recipient will need to enter to open the email. 

The expiration date ensures that the email self-destructs after a certain amount of time, while the passcode ensures that only the intended recipient can access the email.

Write your message in the body of the email, as you would for a regular email.
  • Send the Email
Once you have written your message, click on the "Send" button to send the email.
  • Revoke Access (Optional)
If you want to revoke access to the email before the expiration date, open the email in your Sent folder and click the Remove Access button.
