Google Adds Security Features to Gmail (Dark Reading)


Google announced a wave of G Suite updates, most of which focus on Gmail. The email service is getting a new Web look, advanced security features, artificial intelligence applications, further integrations with apps across G Suite, and management changes in Tasks. “This week’s [changes] are about giving users more agency in the cloud,” explains Suzanne Frey, Google’s director of security, trust, privacy, and compliance.

One of the new features is Gmail confidential mode, which lets users protect sensitive content by creating expiration dates or revoking previously sent emails.
