1/7 Gmail users can send and open secret or confidential mails! Gmail provides a secret mode to its users to send and open email in order to help protect sensitive information from unauthorized access. You can send messages and attachments secretly via iPhone, Android, iPad or computer as well. You can use confidential mode to set an expiration date for messages or revoke access at any time too. Notably, recipients of the confidential message will have their options to forward, copy, print, and download disabled to ensure full secrecy is maintained. (HT_PRINT)
