Here we explain How Self-Destructive Emails feature works :-

Sources hints that, Gmail work beyond the industry standard POP3/IMAP/SMTP protocols; and introduce self-destructing emails, based on a new protocol.

Techcrunch's screenshot of Gmail showcases, there shall be a button called “confidential mode” in the compose email screen. Once clicked, the emails sent won’t be able to be forwarded, copy and paste, download or print.

An expiry date can be set, lasting one hour to one year, and even an SMS based confirmation step can be introduced, thereby providing top level privacy and security.

As per the screenshots, the recipient will receive a link in the email, which will have the confidential message.

Google hasn’t yet confirmed this development. More details are awaited.
