Certainly, many users, when sending private emails, especially those that contain personal and sensitive information, want to make sure that the email is sent to the target audience.
Sending emails that contain personal information such as bank account details, home addresses and more can be dangerous. If you use Gmail as an email service provider, this service has introduced a new encryption feature to increase the security of sent messages.
What does Gmail’s new encryption service do?
Gmail experts are preparing a new end-to-end encryption feature that will allow Google Workspace users to send encrypted emails inside and outside their domain. This feature is very important because the encryption of emails is a way to increase their safety and thus only the sender and receiver will be able to read it.
The sender and receiver will have special keys that can be used to unlock emails. The only way for those in the middle of the road trying to access email information is to use the mentioned keys.
written by FoxNewsAfter setting up Gmail encryption, Google servers cannot access your encryption keys or decrypt user information; therefore, your information will remain completely private, and the only part that will not be encrypted is the email header, which contains details such as the email subject, date And the time of sending and receiving and the list of recipients is located in it.
When and how is Gmail encryption enabled?
Gmail’s new encryption feature will be officially activated for users of this platform on January 20, 2023 (30 December 1401). To use this feature, you must be a member of one of Education Plus, Workspace Enterprise Plus or Education Standard services. If you use these services, you will be able to request access to the encryption feature by filling out the Gmail CSE beta test request form. The said form is very simple and only receives email address, project ID, test group domain and some other simple information.
