Confidential emails


Gmail has a built-in feature for sending confidential emails that will erase themselves after a certain period of time. You can also require a SMS passcode that the recipient will receive on their phone.

When confidential mode is used, recipients won't have the option to forward, copy, print, or download this email. This message may still be visible to your employer or school.

If the recipient uses a non-Gmail client, it will send them a link to open in a web browser.

  1. Click on the confidential icon in the bottom of the email window (next to the send button)
  1. Select an expiration date by clicking on the dropdown box that is set to "Expires in 1 week" by default.
  1. You can require the recipient to enter a passcode, that they will receive as an SMS text message, in order to view the message. If you selected "SMS passcode", you will be asked to enter their cell phone number when you click send.
