Google wants its Gmail users to take these security steps in 2023

Google, the much-used search engine across the world, has disclosed some security steps to its Gmail users to stay cyber safe in the year 2023. It is urging its mail users to stay away from spam by marking mails that seem to be suspicious as spam. This not only helps the online users to stay away from malicious downloads but also helps in training the AI smart servers of Gmail to keep its inboxes clean and trouble free.

To make things simple, the internet juggernaut has come up with an archiving email feature where mails that do not require any action from the user are made to sit in a separate folder for later reference.

If an email thread is leaving the user annoyed, they can be marked as mute and then be saved in the ‘All-Mail’ label.

Always keep your google account safe by going through the Security Checkup and Privacy Checkup pages once or twice in 3 months. Key a password that is at least 15 characters and comprises a mix of alphanumeric characters tucked by 1 -2 special characters. Enable 2-factor authentication as it increased security and opt for an Account Recovery Info service.

Now to those who want to send emails that cannot be forwarded, copied, printed or downloaded, here’s a tip.

Google Mail service offers a ‘Confidential Mode’ feature that blocks all the above stated actions scientifically. Moreover, the email can also be set with an expiration date where the sender can set a time frame for the email to remain in the recipient’s inbox and then disappear. Both iPhone and Android mobile users can use the service albeit a few tweaks before sending.
