Because it comes pre-installed on Android phones, Gmail is the most widely used email service in the world. The Big G platform is very useful for sharing or receiving messages that have to do with work or college classes. However, it can also happen that we have to send an email with sensitive information that cannot be seen by strangers. In this case, the solution is confidential mode and here we tell you how you can activate it.
Confidential mode is a function in Gmail that guarantees maximum privacy when sending an email. It is an ideal method to send sensitive or private information to another person so that only that person has the ability to open that email.
The confidential mode of Gmail protects that people outside the mail to which the message was sent have access to it, and thus take care of the privacy of what is sent without other people being able to use it for purposes of damaging the image of the person or company.
