It is possible and only takes a few minutes to set an expiration date for emails. Google offers a confidential mode in Gmail that allows you to add an expiration date. If you add an expiration date to an email, the recipient will no longer be able to access its content after the specified date. This article provides a detailed guide on how to send email with an expiration date. Let’s check it out.
- Sign in to your Gmail account using your web browser.
- To compose an email, click the “Compose” button.
- Enter the email address, subject, and content of the recipient’s email in the email composition window.
- You have to click on the lock button below, which has a clock in front of it.
- This enables Confidential Mode. In the Set Expiration section, click the down arrow to view a list of the various expiration times.
- The expiry time ranges from one day to five years. Select the expiration time you want by clicking on it.
- In the Passcode Required field, select the ‘No SMS Passcode’ option and then click the ‘Save’ button.
- If you’d like to remove access to the email before the expiration date is set, click Send in the left pane and select the expiration message from the email list.
