Gmail Brings ‘Confidential Mode’ For Android

Gmail users on Android have just gained access to a brand new feature that allows them to send messages and attachments in the most secure way. The confidential mode has recently been added to Gmail for Android, intended to help users protect sensitive information from unauthorized access.

However, those who have malicious programs on their computer can still copy or download your messages or attachments. To start using Confidential Mode, you need to open Gmail, click Dial, and at the bottom right of the window, tap Enable Confidential Mode.
