Define rules to handle Gmail confidential mode messages

In April, we introduced the new Gmail, including a feature called confidential mode, which helps you protect sensitive content in your emails by setting expiration dates or revoking access to previously sent messages. This feature is now launching to consumer Gmail users only. As previously announced, it will launch to G Suite users at a later time. As a G Suite admin, you can define rules to handle confidential mode messages sent from consumer users to G Suite users in your domain.

Create a compliance rule to block incoming messages and more
For detailed instructions on how to set up rules for content compliance in your domain, please see this Help Center article. Gmail confidential mode will be listed as an attribute under “Metadata match.”

Stay tuned to the G Suite Updates blog for more information when confidential mode launches to G Suite users.
