How to Send Expiring Emails on phone and desktop

Step 1: Open Gmail on your phone/desktop.

Step 2: Start composing an email by clicking on the “Compose” button.

Step 3: Add all the details like the recipient address, subject, and the time-bound/sensitive information that you want to send.

Step 4: Next up click on the three dots in the top right corner on phone. On the desktop, you’ll see a Confidential option beside the Send button, click on it.

Step 5: Once you click on the three dots on phone, you will get multiple options, select Confidential mode.

Step 6: Now it will let you set the expiry time for the email. You can choose from five of the different options – Expires in 1 day, Expires in 1 week, Expires in 1 month, Expires in 3 months, Expires in 5 years. (Note that while writing this article there were only five options, but this might change in the future.)

Step 7: Once you select the expiration time, you can either decide to choose a standard passcode for this email that would be automatically created and sent to the recipient’s email, or you can choose the SMS passcode, where the automated passcode would be sent on the recipient’s registered phone number. For the second method to work, you would need to input the recipient’s phone number.

Step 8: Lastly, send the email by hitting the arrow on the top on phone. On the desktop, click on the Send button.

Once you send the email, the recipient should receive it by a text mentioning the expiration time of the email. Clicking on the “View the email” option will take him to his web browser where he has to put the passcode and view it. After the set time, the email will be expired automatically.

Do note that when you send an expiring/confidential email, it will prevent the recipient from forwarding or sharing it with anyone. The recipient of the expiring/confidential email cannot take screenshots either.

One way to keep specific users from viewing your profile is by blocking them. The blocked users cannot search for your profile or find any details like followers or following list of your account. The only way they can do all that is if they use some other account. Also Read – Instagram to begin testing NFTs this week in the US: All you need to know

To block any user, all you need to do is go to their profile, tap on the three dot menu in the top right corner and select block.

If you think, blocking is a bit extreme, you can always choose to remove these users from your account. This way, they will have to send you a request to follow and get access to your posts and other data again.

Instagram also offers an option to restrict users on the platform. This option is also buried in the profile menu, just like the Block option.

For the unversed, restricted users will not get access to certain information including your online status when you are active and view your stories. They will also be not able to see the “seen” option when you are done reading their messages on the platform.

According to Instagram, “Only their new comments on your posts will be visible to them and you can choose to see comments by tapping View Comments. You can tap Approve if you want other people to see their comments as well. After that, you can tap Approve to confirm or you can delete or ignore their comment.”
