New protection tools are being prepared by Google after the Facebook scandal and the more general debate about personal data security in the digital world.
In particular, Google has decided to increase the security level of its popular e-mail, “Gmail”. As it became known, the giant of Internet services is developing a new “toolbox” that is expected to significantly increase the level of email protection sent by Gmail users, the number of which exceeds one billion.
Users will be able to enable the “snooze option” to send an e-mail to someone who will arrive at the inbox of the recipient but will remain invisible and make its appearance at a specific amount of time, specified by the sender.
There will also be a “confidentiality” option with which the sender will send an e-mail that the recipient will only be able to read and will not be able to do any other action, i.e. to copy it, forward it, print, etc.
In order for the sender to be absolutely sure that the e-mail he sent to someone would not be seen by indiscreet eyes, he would have a choice in which the recipient to receive the e-mail should prove his identity through a application that will require a code with a text message from a mobile phone, as it is with the web banking services.
The creators of the new toolkit, apparently inspired by the TV series “Mission Impossible”, where the message that the agents took to self-destruct after a few seconds created something similar. So a Gmail user can send an e-mail that will be deleted from the recipient’s mailbox at the time the sender will assign.
Google is expected to present this e-mail protection tool for the first time in a major meeting with developers on May 8th.
