Gmail working on self-expiring emails

San Francisco: In a bid to enhance security for Gmail users, Google is reportedly working on a redesign that would ensure only the recipient can view an e-mail and that too for a specific period of time.

The yet-to-be introduced feature works quite much like expiring emails in “ProtonMail” in which the email becomes unreadable after some time.

“Google will also let Gmail users require a passcode to open emails, which will be generated via SMS, or set an expiration date on sent emails,” The Verge reported.

“The features are very similar to some found in Microsoft’s full Outlook application and Microsoft is also adding the ability to restrict emails on its Outlook.com service,” the report added.
